torque wrenches, whats out there? is there a site that says which are better?

internal88 :

I would suggest 3 brands SNAP ON, MAC and craftsman

internal88 :

Most of the professional use Snap on and Mac products. They are expensive.

internal88 :

Craftsman from sears will be ok for DIY people.

internal88 :

All of the wrenches have lifetime warranty

internal88 :

The Snap On tools are high quality but expensive. You can expect a certificate of calibration and the tool will last a long time with care.

Customer:

okay, i was wondering. well, i guess i will go with craftsman. snap-on be nice, but i dont do a lot. Thanks

internal88 :

The Craftsman torque wrenches is fair but they have some issues on the plastic handle. I felt that it is harder to turn the dial.

Thank you for the accept, I just want to add this to it.

 

Craftsman - If you just need something to torque the lug nuts and don't want to spend much the Craftsman will be OK.

I would not use them on timing belt crank bolt or head bolts. Any wrench that doesn't come with a custom certificate of calibration with the tool serial number is XXXXX something you should use on the most critical components.

Thanks again.
