Elaborated before in other threads, but if you are not to get a 72 to 90 tooth ratchet wrench, might aswell get the HFT $10 one, it is just as accurate in my experience.

Also, I work a lot in Nm too, and I find the Nm marking on most cheap (and often not just cheap) mechanical torque wrenches horrendous (it is just the same scale, and someone with a google unit converter just converted the values on the back side of the tool). If you want a proper scale for both units in an affordable tool, just opt for a eTORK brand mechanical, or just shell for a digital torque wrench.

Brand Lexivon
Sold by Lexivon

Where'd you get coupon code OP?

Brand/Seller has been posted 4 times on forums: 4/4 by same poster. all in last ~45 days.

seems like no name brand and shady "discount" practices (ex last "deal" was a coupon code that saved ~$1.25 off what the normal price was days before...but seller had jacked up regular price to make it seem like larger discount)
this item seems like has been consistent $40ish for a while other than this coupon

had anyone heard of this brand before it's grand SD Popular/Frontpage debut?

No thanks. Too much for a non name. I bought a made in China harbor freight and that failed within a year. I went to warranty with a made in Taiwan version. My point is don't buy it.

if you want a great torque wrench get
precision instruments split beam style.
amazingly better than the cheap stuff.

While its quite abit more its pretty much a lifetime tool and made in USA.

The 1/2 drive is accurate. I even bought 2 to compare and they are pretty much matched. However that is not the case with the 3/8 and 1/4 drives at the higher end of their torque settings, lower to mid range torques are good! So keep this in mind if you're using the 3/8 and 1/4 drive HFT torque wrenches. I was going to buy better ones but they have the same issue at the higher end torques (unless you want to pay 10x) so for $10 each you can't beat these HFT. Plus lifetime warranty without needing a receipt.

I got burned pretty badly by a HF torque wrench. Stripped a bolt in the aluminum engine block. Read the reviews on their website. There are tons of similar stories with spun bolts and sheared heads. Not worth the risk.

HF one is lifetime warranty for $10, and you can exchange it at thousands of locations.

Who'd want this 30 day warranty for 3x the price?

Agreed, there are a lot of things you can skimp out on... but why skimp out on a torque wrench when the whole point is to get an accurate torque reading

I'm pretty sure that it is universally recommended to stay in the middle 60-80% of any torque wrench's range for best results. In other words, the further you get from the middle, the more inaccurate it may become.

One reason HF wrenches are so cheap is that they have horrible quality control, so you MUST check the wrench yourself for proper operation before using it on something important. But if you get one that works, it'll be as good as any of these other inexpensive clickers.

I check (and calibrate) mine by clamping a large allen wrench to the bench top. Then with the appropriate socket and the wrench horizontal, hang a large weight off it and slide it down the handle until it clicks. Multiply the weight by the inches from the center, divide by 12, and compare to the setting on the wrench. Rebuild or adjust as necessary.
