The equipment comprises of:

The knife edged pivot point has 3 positions for the weight marked with the nominal value of the resulting torque. The knife handle is gripped in a toggle clamp with rubber-lined jaws to protect the handle surfaces.

When the blade is placed in the horizontal slot of the beam (its centre line over the fulcrum) and the knife rotated by turning at its handle about the fulcrum until the end of the beam is raised from the bench, then the calculated torque is applied to the joint of handle and blade. The weight attached to the lever can be slotted in to any one of 3 positions to produce one of 3 torques viz.

The equipment is blade oxide coated and has a full calibration certificate.
