Aldi torque wrench only £6.99 @ Aldi (Wigston)

Found 30th Apr 2015
Just picked up a torque wrench from my local Aldi for £6.99. Original price £15.99. Perhaps not the most accurate on the world but still a solid tool and will provide much better leverage than my basic wrench. There were loads left on the shelf in the Wigston store.

Remember the quality and accuracy of this will be rubbish.
I tried to check the Hub nut torque on my Veyron and the mounting bolts for the engines on my 747. It was so out of it's depth, I ended up buying one for £2,000 to do the job properly. £6.99, what an absolute waste of cash.

nope theyre trialling a new thing its to encourage new customers into aldi using the discount voucher, no aldi staff are allowed to 'promote' the paper or its vouchers

You wish !

Good solid bit of kit, for anyone without a Veyron to test how accurate this is.. a video of it instead

A Torque wrench is not meant to be used for extra leverage, get yourself a Wrench breaker bar for that and do the job correctly and safely

This is a fair point. However if you consider the abilities of my normal el cheapo wrench and the fairly basic diy applications I need this for, this will still be a useful tool.

I saw a 747 and Veyron once, those memories are mine to manipulate at will

so bad you have to service them yourself :))

I have one of these (paid £10). I'm a mechanic and our workplace has everything calibrated every 6 months.
I cant remember how accurate it was 'out of the box' (it wasn't wildly out), but its as accurate now as the taskmaster and snap-on ones we have on site according to calibration guy.
Not bad for the money

Always return any torque wrench to zero after use. Messes them up otherwise.

Is your comment meant as a reply to my question about the £5 voucher?
I didn't understand what you meant though, are they discontinuing the vouchers?

Just passin by when i heard this enormous brewha ( i think thats how you spell it)regarding Aldi German engineering tools.
My only Aldi experience of buying some engineering product was a few yrs ago. I was in Aldi shopping when i saw this big ad poster for an electric sewing machine for £60. I thought the price was right as i only wanted it to hem the bottom of any new pair of jeans that i bought. To cut along story short the needle jammed when i was hemming my jeans( It can jam for a number of reasons regardless of being cheap or expensve). I took it to my local sewing machine shop, I was told it was cheap and had limited use, i said i did nt mind cos i wasnot going to make a suit. He showed me a Brother sewing machine which had a built in computer program for all the countless styles, double stich, buton holes and zip sewing to name a few things. He offered to take the sewing machine in part exchange plus cash for the Brother sewing machine( I paid £180 for the Brother sewing machine ). Yes i have jammed it but i have been shown how to prevent it , how to unjam it and any help is given free of charge. I cant thread the needle on the machine automatically but the sewing machine shop do it for me free of charge as well as demonstrating how to use the different sewing patterns and what needle is suitable for heavy denim as opposed to chiffon. Lidl would not have been able to offer me this kind of service cos they dont specialise in sewing machines and that is the problem when you buy practcal equipment from Lidl, they dont have the expertse in the way of advice or experience with regard to certain equipment. So this should be borne in mind. Having said that i have gone to Poundland and bought tools for a pound and found they have worked and continue to work.even though it cost one pound.

I don't think any serious mechanic would even consider this.!
