Remember you can check them by clamping the drive end in a vice parallel tom the floor and hanging a known weight from the handle
I prefer clickers . don't have to look at a dial . I have both. a guy should have some idea of what he is pulling anyway . But from the busted bolt forum a lot are way too strong
Price might be all right . I do like Made in the USA . Better a cheap one then broken bolts . and I think the cheap ones work fine in the range we work in . Jap bike , Jap wrench . I have a lot of snap on but $125 For a 3/8 ratchet is getting far away from my retirement income. I can buy Stanley and Dewatt at Wall Mart for $25 AND THEY ARE A DARN GOOD WRENCH . BUT When I worked on heavy equipment there are the times that Boney , Williams , And Snap On tools are the only ones that did not break on you when you were 30 miles from the nearest town.
Sears has a sale on now and they start a $50 to Sky is the limit . REMEMBER . "''ITS NOT EXPENSIVE < I JUST DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY!!"
OK got to get to the Airport , Wind is calming down ! Am I starting to sound like HILLARY or What
All comments welcome , don't ever compare yourself to that Left-wing babbling goof / liar . Anyway , the recalibration of a deflecting beam is easy , no need to send it off somewhere if there is an issue with recal.. Everyone has their preferences in this world for one reason or another , whatever you choose , knock yourself out. Just passing along info for folks who are deflecting bean wrench types ( ME ). I'm looking for an operational inch pound range between 60 inch and 90 inch pounds . I don't recall seeing Craftsman deflecting beam inch pound wrench's ?.....I have had one of their deflecting beam foot pound wrench's for nearly 30 years.....still accurate.
Stanley, dewalt, black and decker, Mac, Proto and a few others are all made/owned by Stanley.
My Craftsman Foot pound ratchet torque wrench broke again. Still have my old needle foot pound so I'm using it.
You can not go wrong with what Senior Frog says .
If I recall correctly the directions that came with my Sears Beam type torque wrench said ( and I still have the wrench and the booklet they came with ) that it is accurate within 2 to 5 percent until the beam finally breaks and to recalibrate the beam type you just bend the pointer over to point at zero . I only had to do it a time or two because of abuse on my part because I had them in the tool box with other stuff piled on top of them . To do the Frog one better I have TWO of the sears beam torque wrenches a 1/2 and a 3/8 that I bought in 1965 to work on my Honda C110 LOL but who's counting . Just might have to look up Seekonk and see if they have a 1/4 incher .. I still like to feel and hear the click though.
Here is a link to sears 1/4 inchers . there are I believe 2 beam types but I think they only go to 60 inch pounds
UPDATE went to the link and found out there was 10 pages of torque wrenches . May be there are more beam torquers
