Deal Details

awesome torque wrenches for only $10 each with the attached coupons. I've had these for some time now and use them often. i've calibrated them and it came out to within 2% accuracy at all 3 points (high,medium,low). they claim accurate within +/-4%, which is typical for a click-type torque wrench. others who have had theirs calibrated have reported similarly good results. these are one of those hidden gems at harbor freight.

link to 1/2" drive:

http://www.harborfreight.com/1-2-...h-239.html

does 20-150 ft-lbs range. good for suspension work, or lug nuts and some of the bigger stuff on your car.

link to 3/8" drive:

http://www.harborfreight.com/3-8-...h-807.html

does 5-80 ft-lbs range. good for doing things like water pumps, pulleys, spark plugs, valve covers, etc.

coupons are attached.

I'm curious how to use these coupons...will a printout work? Was this in a local circular or did you find them online? I'd be interested in these if I knew the coupon would work...but it's about an hour drive and don't want to waste my time! Suggestions?

you can use them online by typing in the number under the barcode, but you'll have to pay for shipping. (I think $7 flat rate?) so for $7, might be worth saving you 2 hrs (round trip). if you're going to the store anyway, most stores will take print outs of coupons. I found these in some local coupon circulars that get dropped off on my lawn by some shady looking mexican dudes that drive by at 4AM in the morning in a beat-up van.

the coupons i've attached are of sufficient image quality that you should be able to print them out and use them at the store. as long as the numbers under the barcode are legible, if the cashier has problems scanning the barcode they will just type in the number. i use print out coupons like this all the time at HFT... in fact, HFT sends out emails with coupons that you print out in similar fashion.

I'm going to try with the OP provided coupons after work and post the results.... Hopefully they'll work. I needed these last weekend but I'll take 'em now.

Be careful when using these torque wrenches. I have used them frequently, but if you're not paying close attention, you can miss what's often a very VERY subtle "click". High quality wrenches have a really loud hard to miss click, but they are more of a "bump" than a click. I broke a bolt off in my Land Rover head when doing a valley pan gasket job. Not saying don't buy them, just be aware you're buying a lower quality tool.

I have had that experience with the 1/4" and 3/8" HF torque wrenches compared to my Craftsman 3/8" and 1/2" wrenches. I can't fathom how the HF ones are any good at all given their prices versus any other brand, but I really can't complain, either. I tend to use the Sears ones more frequently, but the HF ones have not actually let me down. :shrug:

I have the 1/2" torque wrench and it works great. I'm not sure what the guy above is talking about with the "bump". It is pretty obvious to me when I hit the proper torque. It should of been obvious you were tightening too much before you snapped a bolt off I would assume...

Maybe on their smaller torque wrenches the click is much more subtle...I'm not sure.

that's a good point if one gets torque wrenches that have a soft click. the ones i have seem to be fine in that regard (they click louder than my 3/8" craftsman $70 torque wrench, but about the same as my 1/2 craftsman torque wrench)... but HFT quality can vary some times. i wouldn't hesitate to bring it back and exchange it for one that isn't such a quiet clicker. and my comparison with craftsman isn't anything against craftsman, they aren't exactly a premium brand these days, but it's what i have in my tool box to compare with.

nonetheless, a good point... anyone not as familiar with these type of torque wrenches should test them out and practice on some bolts in a vise to get a "feel" for how the torque wrench reacts.

My 1/2 is still going strong after many years but the 3/8 died with very little use.
The only time I used the 3/8 was to torque the pinch bolts on the triple tree on the bikes.
