Torque wrench recomendations.....

Guest MJG

Recommended Posts

Any body care to make a Torque wrench manufacturer recomendations.....

I'm looking to buy either new or used but am unsure as to what to go for in terms of make/manufacturer. (i know i'll probaly need a couple to get the range of settings I need)

They seem to be either worryingly cheap £10-£15 (and by implication cr@p) or very very expensive (The likes of SnapOn) - I don't really want to spend an arm and a leg on one as it is just for my dabblings as a 'weekend mechanic' (as my garage owning brother in law calls me....ruddy cheek.. :angry: )

Equally I don't want somthing that is going to break easily or be so far out in terms of accuracy that it will cause more problems that it is worth....... :(

Views welcome please and thanks in advance to those who take the time to reply....

Ive had a Sykes Pickavant one for the last 20 years. No problems so far, though should probably get its calibration checked sooner or later. Just another job on the 'to do' list.
