Years ago a guy at work needed to torque a bolt to 10 foot pounds. His wrench would not go that low and no one else in the shop had one either. He was not about to spend the money for a new torque wrench for the small job. He soon was seen welding a piece of rod to a socket of the correct size. At 12 inches out from the center of the socket, he made a mark and hung a 10 pound weight from a weight lifting set. That was his economy torque wrench and got him past the job at hand.
