  Adjustable Torque Driver Kits

Borka Tools ATD-EFK

Borka Tools adjustable torque driver (ATD) provides a range of the tightening torque adjustment from 10 inch-lbs. to 85 inch-lbs. in 1 inch-lb. increments, and represents further evolution of our multi torque driver with 12 fixed torque settings (MTD). Like MTD, new ATD incorporates two, high and low, ranges of torque adjustment. ATD1085 setup example Working with low torque range allows the user to select torque setting between 10 inch-lbs. and 29 inch-lbs., while high torque range provides adjustment from 30 inch-lbs. to 85 inch-lbs. Our 2015 model of adjustable torque driver is called ATD-1085-CSA-MG. "1085" code means that the adjustment range is from 10 inch-lbs. to 85 inch-lbs. "CSA" code means "Continuous Scale Adjustment". "MG" code means "Multi purpose Grade", and is related to ATD ability to be used indoors and outdoors. ATD was intentionally designed to resist certain amount of abuse, which is sometimes unavoidable in the field, particularly in comparison to some torque tools, which are designed, as a rule, for indoors use only.

ATD limiting torque accuracy variation is +/- 4%, which is better than typically expected +/- 6% for the quality hand operated torque tools. In order to achieve this high level of torque limiting accuracy, ATD user is fully expected to follow instructions, provided by Borka Tools. We highly recommend to watch ATD related videos from 8541 Tactical and Learning Firearms, posted on our website home page and available from Youtube. These two videos provide considerably more information than it is possible to include into the printed user guide, and show how to set up and use torque driver and other kit components in great detail. At this time, these two videos are the only ones, which are both recommended and approved by Borka Tools as the official ATD video guides.

ATD operation is based on use of one of the two pre-set "break-over" forces. These two pre-set forces, which correspond to either low or high torque adjustment ranges, are user selectable by simply flipping the torque driver over, and then applied at user adjustable distance between the center of the driver handle spherical notch (which is tightening force application spot) and the driver spindle axis of rotation. When applied force over the adjusted distance exceeds selected torque value, torque driver handle disengages the driver arm lock and then pivots out of the way, effectively canceling further torque application and preventing over-tightening of the fastener.

Compact and light weight (less than 6 ounces), rugged, highly consistent and accurate torque driver is of all metal construction and differs from traditional "slip clutch" and "cam-over" type torque limiting screwdrivers and wrenches by its simple and reliable design. In addition, all torque driver components are made from stainless steel, hard anodized aluminum, and chrome or zinc plated alloy steel. This choice of materials ensures sufficent degree of corrosion protection when torque driver is used outdoors.

Borka Tools currently offers two ATD based torque tool kits, BTK and EFK, in several configurations, which are different from each other because of the variety of included accessories, packaging and pricing. FYI, description of certain accessories, which are specific to the different kit configurations, is provided at the bottom of this web page. There are no differences between torque drivers included in any of the ATD based kits.

Borka Tools 1" long screwdriver bits are made from S2 alloy tool steel and hardened
to HRc 58-60. Borka bits are hard chrome plated for long term corrosion resistance. This feature makes our screwdriver bits very suitable for use in outdoor conditions.

BTK (Basic Tool Kit) is perfect for use in the shop, and is also recommended as an upgrade for previously sold Borka Tools MTD based kits, because nearly 88% of kit price is related to included ATD-1085-CSA-MG adjustable torque driver. According to our supplier, BTK pouch, having outside dimensions of 7.5"x4.0"x1.2", is made in the U.S.A. from high quality vinyl. This simple pouch is a low cost alternative to cordura nylon TAB GEAR custom made pouch, which comes with EFK. As an option, you can pack any tool components from BTK into your own tool bag or case for use outdoors, as needed, and utilize BTK zippered pouch for other applications. BTK includes 15 of the most often used, chrome plated 1" long screwdriver bits, and an additional bits organizer with 14 available spaces for the bits of your own choice.

EFK (Expanded Field Kit) is configured for use outdoors as a standalone light weight torque tool kit. This kit includes EFK specific, cordura nylon TAB GEAR custom made pouch, an enhanced 29 pcs. variety of 1" long hard chrome plated screwdriver bits, and a number of additional accessories. Kit outside dimensions are 6.6"x3.8"x1.2".

BTK and EFK can be purchased with Modular Cleaning Rod (MCR), configured from custom parts made by Pro-Shot Products. While MCR is not an intergral part of these kits, there are no additional shipping charges if MCR, which is priced at $50.00 when purchased together with ATD based kit, is shipped along with BTK or EFK. MCR may be used to build a very compact cleaning kit by adding several brushes and jags for the desired calibers, cleaning patches and bore cleaners of your choice. MCR is also available for sale as a separate item for $50.00 + related shipping charges, and is one of two kits included into recently released Accessories Pack (AP).

From: Boris Teper, Borka Tools Owner

A personal note about Pro-Shot modular cleaning rod - as far as I'm concerned, and in addition to what I was told by my customers, who've purchased and used this product, this is the probably the best quality modular cleaning rod made in the U.S.A., and at a reasonable price. This simply makes it the best value modular cleaning rod, period. I've tried to find an alternative, but nothing came close after weeks of search. Dimensional tolerances and excellent quality of surface finish are consistent from one rod section to the other. While it is a modular cleaning rod, it is practically seamless, and serves as a testament to the high quality of manufacturing, which is strictly observed at Pro-Shot Products. For all practical purposes, nearly seamless modular cleaning rod performs the same as a one piece cleaning rod. As far as I could observe during my research, it is not being widely recognized that in addition to having a capability of being packaged in a very compact format, modular cleaning rod can be configured to closely match the actual length of the firearms barrels. This feature makes Pro-Shot modular cleaning rod more practical and convenient for use on a wide range of fireams, from very short barrel handguns to long barrel rifles. In additon, being only as long as it is necessary makes modular cleaning rod a lot more mechanically rigid, which is very important for the barrel bore cleaning and for removal of the stuck fired cartridge case. Pro-Shot is very well known for high quality products, made in the U.S.A., but in my opinion, their cleaning rods and related accessories really stand out as precision instruments for fireams barrels maintenance. As a long time shooter and professional engineer (P.E.),
I believe that Pro-Shot products deserve serious consideration by serious shooters.    

As a general rule, it is not recommended to use any precision torque limiting tools for loosening the fasteners, only for tightening them. However, and on occasion, ATD may be used to loosen fasteners without negative consequences, but only if fasteners were originally tightened with the same ATD (1), and only if fasteners are not seized due to various factors (2), which may take place over extended periods of time. It is often not practically possible to know condition of the internal threads without first exposing the threads for visual inspection. For this reason, we always recommend to use included, in the kit, ratchet drive handle or other suitable tool for loosening the fasteners. Never use ATD to loosen fasteners, which were secured with thread locking compounds.
