Has Anyone made a scientific test by say 1st torqueing with a wrench, marking the nut location and then using a torque stick to see if it moves the nut further. Secondly, torqueing with the torque stick and then testing with the torque wrench? Does the nut end up in the same place using the torque wrench and the torque stick? Would be interesting to know how far off the torque stick is when compared to the torque wrench..

wouldn't matter anyway, use a different impact or use it at a different pressure and it will change.
bottom line, if you care if it's really accurate use a wrench. If you don't care that much and want it 'close' use a stick or just go by feel on a breaker bar.

This is an interesting thought. Obviously, if the gun is putting out less, it wouldnít reach the yield of the torque stick, but Iím not entirely sure theyíre differential, but instead absolute. If I have a chance later Iíll try a few guns and pressures and see if I canít generate some info.

My 3/8 digital indicator reads over 100, and is under warrantee, so I feel ok doing a little testing for the hive mind. Iirc my trusted, new stick is 80 lbs.
