The silverline one on amazon is 16 and seems to give excellent results for the occasional user. Check out the first review. I'm no expert so I don't know of sealy is a good well-known brand.

The torque ranges between this wrench and the Silverline are massively different. Having both would make a lot of sense, though this would leave a gap of 4Nm between the highest torque of the Sealey and the lowest torque of the Silverline, not really important for home use.
The Sealey wrench also comes with a calibration certificate. Sealey is a respectable brand, much better than Silverline.
Voted hot.

No such thing

For like for like product and nm range

its 3/8" drive ..

I can't really see what you would use this for. Bottom end bolts maybe? How often do you touch those?

looks similar to the blackhead remover listed a few days ago.

Its for bikes not cars. e.g. stems, seatpost clamps but not bottom brackets etc. I was going to buy this last week but then bought this X-Tools one 2-24Nm instead for £24.

Not voted either way as it may be suitable for some but...........If you ar relying on this to tighten a safety item to the required torque, buy a better one like a Sykes Pickavant or Norbar etc.

This will not be accurate out of the box but going by Boris' comments, it should be capable of carrying out those tasks without too much grief.

Use a torque wrench to unscrew the old ones. They have a shear value which if exceeded may snap the glow plug whilst still in the head.

Great bit of kit.

Really fancy this model now - WIDER NM RANGE -

Sealey Style 3/8-inch Drive 7-112nm/ 5-83lb.ft Torque Wrench Micrometer

amazon.co.uk/Sea…64O

but bigger doesn't always mean better .

Some say, smaller the range of torque range, the more accurate, any truth in this ?

I've been looking for a bike torque wrench for ages, as its advisable to use low torque for tightening up on carbon parts.

This is the best deal I've seen

If it was me, I'd warm the engine up first, seeing as it's an ally head. Penetrating oil won't hurt, but give it some time to work...

If you use a torque wrench to undo, you must first check if it will torque in a LH direction (most don't). To check, set the wrench to undo, then set it to a very low torque setting, find the biggest nut/bolt and attempt to undo if the wrench clicks/breaks easily then it's suitable.

If they are awkward I would take the advtce of HerWorseHalf in comment 19. Run the engine and penetrating oil.

Believe what you want but I assure you, it wont. It's cheap to buy because it was made cheaply. As I said, it is what it is but don't trust it with your life or anyone elses.

Do you just use the sockets from a standard socket set with this? Also is the range on this good for home / car use?
