Sorry JonM, glad you caught that. That's what I get for assuming that everyone knows to put the AR wrench on the torque wrench at 90 degree. Didnt even occur to me that someone would try to put it on inline. Guess you don't see the obvious when you've been doing it for so long....
They say assumption is the mother of all f%&*ups....
