Borka Tools is pleased to present our new, 2020 model of adjustable torque driver, aka "Borka Torque Driver" (BTD) and a wide variety of BTD based kits in expanded, combo and customer specified configurations.

New kit concept and important features were professionally reviewed by John McQuay from 8541 Tactical, and the version of the kit, shown in the video, is called "BCK-JM":


Note: Additional information of mostly technical nature is provided at the end of this post.

Here are the main differences from previously run, by Borka Tools, GBs for our products:

1. Participants of the Group Buy will receive 7.5% discount relative to the retail price.

2. Borka Tools will donate another 7.5% of all proceeds from this GB to support Snipers Hide.

Such arrangement lets GB participants to donate 7.5% of their money (received by Borka Tools) to Snipers Hide. I believe it is one of the practical ways to support Snipers Hide, which all of us like to use so much.

Estimated USPS shipping charges are $9-$14, depending upon the size of your order.

This GB is an exclusive one-time opportunity for SH members to purchase 2020 Borka kits on beneficial terms. When I reach the goal of collecting a certain amount of money in support of Snipers Hide, GB will
be closed. After GB is closed, no discounts of any kind (for individual customers, including SH members) will be available in the future. Nothing personal, strictly business.

I will quote your kit(s), reply and send PayPal payment request to your e-mail. If you have PayPal account, you know what to do. If not, just choose payment request option to send money using your credit or debit card; PayPal will then act as just a credit or debit card processing company.

Borka Tools only ships to the valid U.S. addresses. It's been our practical experience that international shipping takes a lot of time and effort in comparison to domestic shipping, and lacks any control over delivery. Because of big expense for international shipping, Borka Tools will not be providing warranty
or technical support for our products, located outside the U.S. zip codes areas.

GB orders will be shipped in 2-4 business days after payment is received.
By the end of day when your order was shipped, you will receive shipping
notification e-mail with USPS tracking #, automatically generated and sent
by PayPal. If you paid by USPS money order, tracking # will be e-mailed to
you by Borka Tools.

Note: Borka Tools will not be shipping GB orders between December 14th and January 8th.

Please avoid using PMs for GB communications.
I have to keep everything related to SH GB in one place,
and my business e-mail database is a convenient place to keep all GB business records.

Your feedback is extremely important for all kinds of reasons, please post it in this thread.

Best wishes to everybody,

Additional information:

2020 Borka Torque Driver (BTD) design is different from our 2015 adjustable torque driver (ATD) design. Instead of "break-over" torque tool design concept of ATD and our original MTD (Multi Torque driver), BTD utilizes our new very unique design (patent pending), which provides better ergonomics, accuracy and consistency of BTD in comparison to ATD. Method of torque adjustment remains the same and there are barely any weight and dimensional differences between BTD and ATD. The main design difference is that BTD has no pivoting handle. BTD utilizes short stroke crossbar, which, when desired torque value is reached, slides 1/8" in the direction of torque application and generates an easily detectable sound "click". When torque tool "clicks", it is very certain that torque tool performed just one complete cycle of torque application. When torque tool "slips" without generating any "click", it is a very different story.

Here is a link to a very raw, but I hope, informative video specifically dedicated to BTD setup and its use for torque application. Sorry for my accent, can not get rid of it, no matter how much I've tried:

BTD instruction video by Boris from Borka Tools

Another change, related to BTD, is the implementation of the highly practical and very easy to use torque adjustment range from 10 inch-lbs. to 70 inch-lbs. And if there is a need for torque application of less than 10 inch-lbs. or more than 70 inch-lbs., BTD kit can include Borka Tools PTL (Precision Torque Limiter), for example PTL0004 (4 inch-lbs.) for NF ZeroStop turret screws or PTL0100 (100 inch-lbs.) for some of the NF scope mounts crossbolts, or even both of these PTLs. PTL0080 (80 inch-lbs.) for DT SRS/HTI/MDR barrel changes and PTL0090 (90 inch-lbs.) for ARC Barloc are also available. As the result, you always have an option to configure your Borka Combo Kit (BCK) so that it will work for many different applications. When PTL is integrated into BCK, it will cost less in comparison to the same PTL, purchased as a separate item.

And here is another link to a very raw, but possibly useful video, specifically dedicated to PTL setup and its use for torque application. Again, sorry for my accent, can not get rid of it:

PTL instruction video by Boris from Borka Tools

Borka Torque Driver (BTD) and Cleaning Rods (ECR and MCR) are made in the U.S.A. by Borka Tools and Pro-Shot Products. Accessories, such as bits sets, sockets, extensions, ratchets and Maxpedition pouches are custom made in Taiwan. All our kits, without exception, are assembled and quality controlled in the U.S.A.

FYI, Maxpedition pouch, which we use for BTD kits, is a very slightly modified Maxpedition E.D.C. Pocket Organizer (manufacturer item # 0246), and it is readily available for purchase from many online retailers. This pouch is suitable for packaging of currently available and future combo and custom kits. Our custom TAB GEAR pouch is more compact and works well for selected kits having mostly fixed configurations.

Take note that our latest BTD design is fully expected to remain the same for the next 15+ years.

I'm in Boris but as always I need to complicate your life.

Can you offer me a BTK/LBK with the PTL0004 and the PTL0090?

Just bought the ATD kit about 2 weeks ago from your website. I think I've torqued just about everything around the house with it that I can. Easy to use and accurate. This upgrade looks like it will everything that is and more.

Received BCK-JM kit today. Tested it out right away, checked the torque on the scope mounts. Works as described in 8541 Tactical’s vid. This is an amazing piece of kit.

From Navy Chief:

"Got my kit yesterday, these are amazing quality and functionality for the money. "

Navy Chief, thank you very much for your feedback.

I'm surprised myself how well the new 2020 Borka Torque Driver works... It's actually more accurate than it probably needs to be, ergonomics is much improved in comparison to 2015 ATD and it's made in the U.S.A. from stainless steel and anodized aluminum for enhanced corrosion resistance.

Have no plans to change this design for the nearest 15+ years, after spending the last 2 years for R&D and testing five different prototypes for accuracy and durability.

Boris
