VPS Torque Meter for the Morrill Sidewinder


New design and production by Volare Products. This torque meter is rated at 120 inch-ounces (one full revolution). While the design has not been "calibrated", it has been compared to a Wilder Torque Meter and the measurements are consistent.

Each meter is hand made in our shop. An estimated 250 hours went into studying an old Hinson-style torque meter AND IMPROVING on the design. The body is 6061 Aluminum while the output shaft is steel. The design features a ball thrust bearing for smooth operation under load and two bronze bushing supporting both ends of the output shaft to eliminate side-to-side wobble.

The external housing size has been calculated to allow for a centimeter scale to be applied. The scale shows zero-12 with 1/10th increments. This corresponds to zero-120 inch-ounces (multiply reading by 10).

The meter is a simple installation: unscrew the attachment on the end of the winder, screw on the meter, and screw the attachment back onto the meter (see photos). Lock-tite or CA is recommended on the threads, but not required.
