Highly rated Draper Torque wrench at a fantastic price, these are usually £25 + P&P all day long. This is 10-80nm for smaller jobs, they also have a 40-210nm version at £18.77

I realise it's not going to be of interest to a lot of people, but I've been hunting hard for a good price on a decent torque wrench and was well chuffed to find this deal

Edit: I'd also like to point out that reviews on Draper torque wrenches I have found point to them being accurate to within a couple of % - which is very good for the price and a lot better than most unbranded ebay alternatives, and as far as the 3/8 sizing goes, any good socket set (which you'll need to go with this) will have adapters anyway.

Excellent price considering brand and that it's delivered! I was looking for one of these smaller lower torque wrenches a while back and couldn't find them anywhere near this price.

Agree - Hunted for one these for ages at the right price and the right brand and now you found it!

Heat N rep

Bought one of these from Amazon a few weeks ago and its OK

bought this about a month ago for £17.49,decent quality for the price.,ideal for diy mechanics

I bought a large torque wrench earlier in the year from ebay and it was not only cheaper than this but it also had an adaptor to allow smaller sizes of sockets.

The smaller torque wrenches were even cheaper.

Based on the above, voted cold, as its too expensive.

If you want to set your Torques for your bolts accurately then this isnt it. You look at paying atleast £50-60 for a semi decent one like a teng. For the price though its good value but would not say its a quality brand.

What brand do the pro's use mate? Thanks.

And for years I've just been tightening the bolts on my car by turning the bolt until it won't turn anymore

You may want to add in the title that this is for a 3/8" drive. Good deal though.

Sure it's not goint to be 100% accurate, but it has got to be better than doing it by "feel".

Also the good thing about this model is the lower torque range. The bigger higher torque 1/2" ones are ten a penny usually around for under £20 in Argos and Screwfix, sometimes on offer in Aldi.

Britool. Mac Tools or Snap On

The Halfords Professional ones get a good write up at around £50.

A lot of cheap torque wrenches are far from accurate. If accurancy isn't the objective then why bother with a torque wrench at all?

I would much prefer this to an unnamed ebay type.

Good find and good price

Proffesional mechanics will mosty all use snap-on torque wrenches as your snap-on dealer can recalibrate it for you properly (and free if your a regular) unless your using it for DIY or a real back street garage you should get it calibrated once a year to avoid damaging delicate components

Obviously this dosent apply to the deal as this draper is pure DIY. Heat added for those looking for basic tools this is a good deal.

The most important thing to remember is to always "unload" the torque wrench when you have finished with it and leave it set at zero when not in use.

ermmmm ratchet with leverage? id have thought that answer would be pretty obvious.

Draper of today is just cheap chinese rubbish you may as well just go buy a cheap no name brand as its probably the same thing. I bought a T handle screw driver just a couple of weeks ago the quality was frankly shocking and its a shame drapers name has fallen so far so fast.

Machine Mart sell a Clark one that looks identical to the Draper for £16.09.

What are these like at the extremes of their range? My car nuts say to torque to 80nm.

Hot from me - was thinking about getting one of these this weekend as I probably over tightened everything redoing my calipers.

That's the 1/2" one no doubt. They pop up under the brand of Challenge and as a special in Lidl sometimes too. This 3/8" lower torque one is not normally available this cheap though.

Get the higher torque range one in the other post :thumbsup: This one is better for lower torques.

Its defiantly 3/8", they have only recently started to sell them. They do sell the 1/2" one as well.

Auto express have some reviews up, and show the Clarke and challenge types to be nowhere near as good, so looks aside they are different

As well as that, there's a more normal range 40-210 n m wrench also cheap at amazon:

Just got mine. Seems much better quality than the bigger Challenge Torque Wrench I got from Argos a while back. Those saying it's not accurate and is cheap DIY crap - I ask why there is a recalibration screw with a sticker over it saying not to be adjusted by the operator, and the leaflet says Draper offer a repair and calibration service. Something my Challenge Torque wrench leaflet makes no mention of. No idea on the price of this service but I suspect it will be cheaper to buy a new one which has already been calibrated. I agree it probably is nowhere near as good as snap-on etc, but for the price it's great! Am sorely tempted to buy the 1/2" one now. Thanks very much for posting Awaken
