List some good name brands. I know Craftsman, Snap-On....I love Snap-On quality but the prices sky rocket there. Craftsman wants like $150 for theirs and it only has a measly 1 year warranty. Been looking at Draper, seems to be popular, its out of the UK.R&D said:Invest in a good inch/pounds torque wrench. You will pay a little more for a good one but definately worth it if you are going to be in the engine any at all.
Well I think they have a $80 and a $100 torque wrench, those only have a 90 day warranty. Looks like I might just buy a Draper.thebird_19 said:Craftsman want 150? I only spent 80 on my 1/2 wrench from them and it works great. They had one for 60 but I went with the $80 because I used on like it in shop class. I think the in lbs one was 10 or 20 bucks cheaper. My friend has a snap-on 1/2 and it cost him $240. I would go with a dependable manufacture but if you aren't making a living out of it, don't buy the most expensive. Its just a waiste of money. Like the guy said earlier, if you are going to be in the engine definately buy both. You'll need them. I haven't busted into mine yet but when I do I'll buy the the in lbs wrench to.
Its out in my garage. Good one too! :neenerLittleTex said:You mind finding one? All of the ones I've seen that start at 10Nm only go up to 80Nm. Gotta be a good one too, don't want no junk. :neener
Doh, looks like I got the Nm and lbs mixed together.jim schmidt said:Its out in my garage. Good one too! :neener
It doesn't mention the NM readout but the picture indicates the two readout windows just like mine.
