This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) covers handles and attachments for use with sockets and crowfoot wrenches in aerospace applications involving high torque, limited clearances, and generally clean conditions. This document provides additional requirements beyond ANSI B107.10M appropriate for aerospace use. The use of adapters, either enlarging or reducing, for turning high-strength fasteners is an unsafe practice. Adapters are not included in this document. Inclusion of dimensional data in this document is not intended to imply all of the products described therein are stock production sizes. Consumers are requested to consult with manufacturers concerning lists of stock production sizes.
Standard is being reviewed due to 5 year cycle; in addition, to incorporate customer requirements.
