How much do you compensate for torque lost from the wobbles?

The wobble joints only loose torque by roughly the sin of the angle. I have to add about 20% to the spec to get the proper torque at the bolt. I have a torque adapter that will register peak torque I will do a test next time to actually measure what comes out to set the torque wrench.

As we are talking about a square connector at an angle doesn't it account at what rotational position it is (same like a universal joint)? Not that I would personally mind the small difference with a reasonable angle used.

Wobble extension allows the socket to pivot up to 10 or so.

They are much better than universals. Especially when using impact (though with impact they do suck up torque).

Love wobble extensions. They give you just enough give without going to a universal.

I also have /₄ , /₂ , /₈ impact flex joints but they take up a lot more space so the wobble is option A.
