I need to know the approximate width and thickness of the head of the torque wrench. I'm thinking of a 100-600 ft-lb range wrench, ratcheting head, micrometer adjustable type wrench. Nothing too fancy. I need to work out some tight clearances for tightening bolts on a structure we're designing.

Here's an example from S-K/FACOM:
and from another source:

Thanks in advance, fellas.

A Snap-On 3/4" drive ratchet is 2 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" thick. Does anyone have any reason to suppose that a torque wrench ratchet head would be significatnly larger than that?

Found it. Sorry for the bandwidth kill, but in case anyone else is interested, [url=http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/pro_det.asp?P65=&tool=all&item_ID=55269&group_ID=954&store=snapon-store&dir=catalog]here[/url] is a link to a Snap-On page for their 3/4" drive torque wrench, complete with dimensions. Huh. Can't get the image link to work. Oh, well, it looks like a torque wrench.

Thanks, [b]Diss_ipator[/b]. That's the same one I found. For some reason, when I first attacked Snap-On's catalog, I wasn't seeing any 3/4 drive torque wrenches.
