    I see a large offset between the fat bar on the torque wrench and the major axis of the extension wrench.
    So just put an offset in the extension wrench to compensate.

    That should work. I made my adapter so there is no offset.

    There are times when I sure could use an adjustable wrench that indicates torque. Well, I've got an adjustable wrench and I've got a torque wrench. Why not just stick them together? Does this change the amount of torque being applied?
