NON POLITICAL---Need Torque Wrench Service

I have a rather large capacity torque wrenh ( over 600 lbft) that needs to be serviced and calibrated.
I would like someone close to Baltimore, MD so I could take it in and not pay shipping.
Anyone have a suggestion?
Even a place to start looking would be a help.

Michael

Where to start? A quick Google search turns up Master Metrology in Towson. Make a phone call and see where that leads you. Even if they don't offer precisely the service you need, they might be able to refer you to an outfit that does.

Must...resist...cannot!

Seeing as how it is MS, I'm betting it is a right-handed wrench, only.

Know any Air Force folks at Bolling or Andrews AFB's? They will have a "PMEL" (affectionately AKA "PeeSmell") shop that calibrates all the military's torque wrenches, protractors, thermometers, and so on. It's a long shot, but if you can find the right guy, they might do it for you.

And while you're at it, fly your Cessna in for an overhaul.

Check with the maintenance shops at an airport. They are required to have their wrenches calibrated periodically. Also some of the mobile tool vendors could likely take care of your problem.
