Head Nut Torque Extension

Hey all, just wanted to share something. I was watching some youtube videos about replacing the head bolts and one video in particular strongly recommended picking up a tool made by Snap-On that is an extension made to torque down the driver's side rear bolt/nut. So I looked it up, and I knew it would be pricy, but my eyes still bugged out a bit when I saw the price:
SRD35, Torque Adaptor, Diesel Head Bolt, 6.0L Power Stroke Engines

Then I remembered something, I had a old 1/2" swivel that had broken on me. And, I had a small piece thick bar-stock. So I cut the swivel down and 10 minutes later had my own version of this extension.
(pictures attached)

After I was done something occurred to me that wasn't mentioned in the person's youtube video. Since this extension is lengthening the torque wrench, the torque measurement would be off. Surprisingly, when I searched google for some documentation on how to calculate the new torque setting, I found a TON of data. If you just search for "torque wrench extension calculation" you will get a lot of sites that calculate the new setting for you.

This is a good one:
