SILCA have announced that, making use of the Kickstarter platform to cover costs and machining, they will be launching a new tool. Founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy,
Founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi outside of Milan, Italy, SILCA was the first company to put gauges on pumps, to produce a true high-pressure frame pump, to work with revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII, and later the first to bring CO2 to roadside inflation.
The T-Ratchet is a 100mm-long, 60g tool which magnetically converts between T-Handle tool, thumb-stabilized ratchet tool, and flag-handled screwdriver. The tool uses a SILCA-developed 72-tooth ratchet mechanism for significantly finer engagement than other designs.
Ti-Torque is a 30g, 100mm-long extender for the T-Ratchet capable of measuring 0-8Nm torque readings in real time. Ti-Torque is based on a 6Al/4V Titanium Torsion beam and displays torque on the side of the extender during use.
