Deal Details

Last Edited by wuzzy September 15, 2016 at 06:33 AM
Sears has Dr. Digi-Click torque wrenches on "Hot Buy" @ $55.99 with $1.12 in Rewards Points back, making them cheaper than the regular Craftsman micro-click wrenches.

Craftsman 3/8-in. Dr. Digi-Click Torque Wrench, 5-80 ft. lbs. [sears.com]

Craftsman 1/2-in. Dr. Digi-Click Torque Wrench, 25-250 ft. lbs. [sears.com]

Well reviewed @ 4 of 5 stars each.

Useful if you have trouble reading the markings on the regular micro-click ones. They are kinda tiny. Or if you want to convert between foot and inch pounds or to newtons easily.

Hot Buy, so coupons probably won't work and points probably will.

Great deal OP, but I had the last generation of this torque wrench and the electronics died in a little over a year. Makes me a bit leery on taking a chance on another.

I did like mine when it worked and it had a capacity of 250# which my clicker did not. I'll have to debate about trying another.

How do you verify a torque wrench is accurate ?

yup, electronics aren't great, they'll always eventually die... spend the money on a nice mechanically set clicker and you'll have it for life. i use a beam for small things and a snapon clicker my father bought 30+ years ago, good tools will last generations.

they're within the equipment specs when you buy them. in the commercial world they're calibrate annually, in the residential and small business world it doesn't matter... any float from the spec the tool may have won't affect what you're doing at home in the slightest.

Am I better off purchasing an analog CDI wrench with a little more $$$?

Not disagreeing, but there's some value in the easy to read screen. For some folks, the shorter lifespan might be worthwhile.

My assistant for example. I had to set his regular clicker wrench for him yesterday. He hadn't brought his reading glasses and couldn't make out the markings.

For those wondering, it's probably worth noting that these are not lifetime warrantied. (I'd guess because if not properly set back to the lowest measured setting when stored they can become inaccurate.)

Then again, depending on who buys the Craftsman brand when Sears goes bankrupt next year, even a year might be pushing it.

That said, overall reviews are decent and the price is good.

EEK!EEK!EEK!EEK! !!!!... Thanks for mentioning that!

For those who may be wondering...
  • One-year warranty applies to all Craftsman "clicker" or digital (readout) torque wrenches.
  • Lifetime warranty only applies to Craftsman "beam" type torque wrenches.
  • Warranty linky-thingy: https://www.craftsman.com/custome...ion#point3

This, of course, applies to ALL clicker type torque wrenches.

The non-electronic clicker torque wrenches have a one-year warranty; these electronic torque wrenches have a 90-day warranty, and they fail at an absolutely hilarious rate for no apparent reason - the electronic readout just stops working. Craftsman torque wrenches, in general, are incredibly suspect in build quality and I'd recommend that anyone interested look instead to another brand. If you really insist on buying one of these, KEEP YOUR RECEIPT and bank on still having difficulty doing a warranty exchange as store management tends to be extremely suspicious of torque returns.

XOXO, former Sears tool guy

The overall rating is 4 of 5 and it's made FP twice before, so I figured it was worth posting.

I wouldn't knowingly post a bad item.
