There are numbers going around the handle starting from 0. On the shaft there are the levels of pounds/ft going up. How do i set this? I know if i twist the handle up the torque increases, but what are the numbers going around the handle for?
The numbers going around the handle are the increments between the numbers going up the shaft. For example if on the shaft there is a line at 10 and at 20 then around the handle it should have 0-9 so if you start at 10 ft/lbs and need 15ft/lbs you turn the handle until the 5 lines up with the center shaft line. That gives you the 10 plus 5 = 15. Look at it, turn the handle, think about it and you should be able to figure it out.
