Consists of a torque head, adjustable in height by means of a lead screw rotated by a drive wheel to enable the vane to be lowered into the specimen. Rotation of the vane is by means of an electric motor which operates a worm gear arrangement turning the upper end of a calibrated torsion spring. The vane shaft is attached through the hollow upper shaft to a resettable pointer which indicates the angle of torque on a dial graduated in degrees. The dial reading multiplied by spring factor gives the torque.
