Does putting an ext. on the end of a torque wrench chg. the torque setting? Or is it the same, I have heard it does.

I wouldn't think it would affect the torque reading. Since most extensions don't twist when you crank on them. Unless I'm missing something.

it's no different than pushing harder on the wrench itself, the measurements i takes are still accurate
