digital torque adapter

Question:
Do you have to buy seperate torque adapters for different drive ratchets: 3/8 and 1/2? Also can you simple put a reducer to be able to use it for 1/4 drive ratchet or torque wrench??
Answer:
Hello-You can buy each size or use adapters keeping in mind that using adapters requires attention to the necessary torques because using a 3/8  or smaller apdapters will have a tendency to place too much torque on bolts and/or nuts causing shearing of the studs.  Using adapters is a cheap way of creating breakage problems.
Thanks for asking,
Carl
