LASER 3/8" Torque Wrench from Screwfix £21.99

Found 20th Feb
Torque wrench with ft/lb dual scale, 7 incremental height adjustments and knurled grip. Supplied in heavy duty carry case.

Was £34.99

Last time I bought a Torque Wrench was a Britool UK made item a long time ago. I fear that they have passed on like many other old UK companies. I hope that this Screwfix one is half as good as my old Britool wrench!

(I have tried to copy the image from Screwfix website but no can do. I'd be grateful if anyone can help - Screwfix ref = 69322)

Thanks to whoever posted the pic!
good post, personally, I chose to go for a certified calibrated torque wrench which is only a little more @ FFX £29.99

But if you prefer something, long and black

+1.
A certified calibrated one is a must in my books - especially for the lower range. A non calibrated one is fine for the big stuff like car wheel nuts or clutch hub nuts (I've got an old Facom deflecting beam one for those sort of jobs) but most of my work is on motocross and road bikes and use the 20-45mn range a lot and don't want to over/under-tighten anything. I've just got a Halfords Pro one for that but ,surprisingly to their credit, it's been perfect for over 10 years now (probably because it's manufactured by Norbar). Had it calibrated a couple of times - no issues. I don't think they're ever knocked down in price so I'm not suggesting it as an alternative to the OP.

not going to profess to be an expert, but mine certainly appears to have been certified. Got a serial number on the wrench, which matches that on the cert and is wet ink signed (Steve I think! ).
Not to say it isn't Chinese made and cert'd in UK (the quality of that certification obvs being up for discussion), but all I know is it is individually cert'd

The laser may well be too, torque wrenches are one of the tools it pays to buy a decent quality well made item (not brand snobbery, but accuracy).

Fair enough if you're only using it as a big ratchet for car wheel bolts etc, but over or under torquing some parts can lead to expensive repairs.
The Teng I shared was under £40 (calibrated at manufacture) same item re-calibrated on shipping was 139 euro tengtools.ie/Tor…-CT Paying more for a fresh certificate for those who must use calibrated tools only.
There's a MacAllister 3/8" Torque Wrench in B&Q for £10 in their clearance sale,
