I wonder how accurate this would be, plus a delivery charge would take the price to £22 where as you can get something similar with good reviews from Amazon for less or a more accurate one for £25 ish

What does make me laugh with most of the reviews that you come across about any torque wrench, is that most users attempt to use a piddly 3/8" socket and 1/2" to 3/8" downsizer to remove or tighten high torqued bolts. The complain that the downsizer snaps.

Buy it in-store and there's no delivery charge.

dangerous junk. If a job is important enough to need correct torque, why on earth would you use this piece of ****?

What high precision jobs do you do with your torque wrench? Are you fixing aeroplanes? This may not be as accurate as more expensive wrenches but it is not going to be so inaccurate that you're going to endanger anyone.

Could be if you are doing up a crankshaft pulley bolts are enough to warrant precision torquing. Especially those with no key to hold the pulley in place

Does your average punter work on crankshafts?

I'm your average punter and I fix my own cars including cambelts and crankshafts that require an accurate torque. Even road wheels need precise torquing.

Normally a torque wrench would be used for jobs that require a certain amount of tightness on the bolt being fixed, so I would think it is important that the tool is calibrated and accurate the best it can be. Isn't that what these were designed for? accuracy. Anything needing a long wrench and torquing obviously is a tight fitting and requires fixing as such.

However, for the odd job around the house I can't see this being a problem but then how many DIY jobs would you need a torque wrench for? Any other tightening of a bolt etc you pretty much will do by hand and if you need lower torque ratings I guess you ideally would need to use a smaller wrench that offers a lower range of torque.

I use one for doing up my wheel nuts so they arent too tight.
