Very tempting. I have had my eye on the Tekton Torque wrench on Amazon [amazon.com] for a while now but this might make me pull the trigger and get it.

Yea, i have the HF version but there were times when i can't feel the 'click' on the HF torque wrench when tightening bolts. I'll try this and see if this will work better. I think $30 and change is a good price for this.

BE AWARE GUYS this is for torquing engine blot not for tires and other big things I order this by mistake a year ago but its turn OUT that the 1/5" version is for wheel bolts and higher torquing .

It's not a great idea to use a torque wrench too close to the edges of its range. Accuracy goes way down. Plus, for torquing somethign in the 10ft-lbs range, you want a lot less leverage than you would have with the handle on a 1/2" drive torque wrench. The 1/2" is good for wheel lugs and other high torque items, but the 3/8" will be more versatile for most other jobs. You'll want a 1/4" for smaller items. Get the cheap HF one for lug nuts and this one for most other items (or just get a whole set of HF torque wrenches if it's just for occasional DIY jobs).

HF version is about half the price, and quite accurate. However, I have also felt on light settings the click is hard to detect. For light settings I put my hand on where the head connects and feel the movement when proper torque is reached.

HF also has an electronic torque adapter that will make any wrench a torque wrench - Has anyone tried that? I think that one beeps.

Any recommendations for higher torque - like 160 lbs-ft + ?
My HF 1/2" only goes to 150 max. Accuracy is less on extremes.

Agreed, the accuracy suffers at range edges - but why would the leverage matter? It should click at the right torque..... with more leverage you would just feel less force is used, but should not result in over tightening.

the reviews on these are pretty bad so i imagine they're similar to HF ones that are 1/5th the price. also the craftsman don't have lifetime warranty and with these kinds of reviews i would never buy one without a lifetime warranty.

what's you alls' opinion on beam style wrenches? are they pretty accurate or does brand/quality make a huge difference? do they need to be calibrated over time like the click ones? i'd get one just to have if they didn't require replacement.

With a click-type torque wrench, you can continue to apply torque after the specified torque has been reached (i.e. after it has clicked). With more leverage, if you overshoot slightly, you've overshot by a lot more. In the case of low-torque bolts, you can easily snap them off or simply over-torque them.

I like the AC Delco digital torque adapters that come in 3/8" and 1/2" drives. It attaches to any ratchet or breaker bar and has a beep that gets faster when you are getting close to the set torque. Once you reach the torque, the beep turns to a solid tone. You can set the toque in N-m, kg-cm, in-lb or ft-lb. It's great to use deep in the engine bay or under the vehicle where you normally wouldn't be able to use a click type or beam torque wrench. You can sometimes get them on eBay for less than $50 if you use an automotive coupon.
