I'm not suggesting this be compared to Halfords professional. If your looking for a cheap Torque Wrench and heading to eBay/Amazon then consider this for roughly the same price (if not cheaper) but with 3 year Warranty.

Buy cheap buy twice... There you go said it...

Thanks. I needed a torque wrench the other day and had to borrow one. I'll get one of these for the toolbox. Not needing one very often I can't justify more expense. Three year warranty gives piece of mind too.

Hubby says, great deal (Last time he said that we were playing strip poker!)

Brilliant

probs fine for casual use but not for daily. if you want a halfords pro for cheap just get a trade card then the 60nm-300nm drops from 85 odd quid to 45.

If this is the same one they've had for the past few years then it's a fantastic tool.

Heat added!

Do I ask for a trade card in store?

I bought this for around £10 a year ago in Aldi

Can I use this to take out and replace my VW Golf car battery?

Does any one know the range this covers and also how accurate they are, A bad torque wrench can be worse than no torque wrench!

cool I need to get one to tackle an oil change and and ICV clean.

I don't think you need a torque wrench to take a battery out. you need a socket set.

I have had one of these for several years and I have checked it several times against a friends regularly calibrated Snap-on torque wrenches (one manual one digital) and the results from mine are almost identical (just 1 - 2NM out). It is also accurate against another of his torque wrenches, but I can't remember the make. It looks very, very expensive though! My friend works on aircraft engines, so needs accurate wrenches. So I would say all good for the average home mechanic like myself and certainly better than not using one where you should.

Great for wheel nuts - it surprising they don't need to be as tight as you might think. Certainly no need to stamp on a wrench to get them tight enough and the length of this makes them easy to do.

ah this takes me back to the day a couple of years ago when the checkout girl failed to scan this in my big shop, £16 discount!

You will need to have some affiliation with the motor trade. They don't just hand them out like a Tesco ClubCard.

they have these every year and usually have stock left over that gets reduced to between £5 and £7.50 to get them shifted. Have got one and use it regularly and had no issues with it.

When they reduce the price it will become a hot deal. ☺

What's the torque range on these?

What's the torque range on these?

28 to 210 Nm and comes with a short 1/2" extension and three 1/2" sockets (17, 19 and 21mm)

Yes. Last time I went for this deal I got some hen's teeth, salmon legs and rocking horse manure for the garden ..... but did not find the wrench.

I never saw them for £4 either, in my local Aldi they were £7 and in Gainsborough they were £5 so I guess it is down to the local manager to decide how much to reduce them to.

Would this be any good for doing spark plug changes (with the appropriate socket bit) or maybe a cylinder head change on an old Vauxhall Cavalier? How about wheel bearings?

What I mean is, does this wrench have a good Nm range for the odd job on a car?

This price and the 3 year warranty nice find op heat added no question

That was answered in Post#18
In practice, if you are doing a wide range of jobs requiring a torque wrench on a regular basis, you probably need two (one similar to this and the other optimised for the lower end of the scale)

Yes, just remove the battery cables and lay the torque wrench across the terminals, making sure it makes good contact with both. That should take it out.

Use mine to change to winter wheels, tip only use to tighten bolts don't use to loosen or you may damage the wrench. Useful link for wheel bolt torque settings: continental.hu/www…pdf

Had one of these a few years, great for general stuff, wouldn't trust its accuracy for tightening head bolts but great for wheel nuts etc, used it to strip and rebuild the forks on my motorbike.

As for spark plugs, no need for a torque wrench, just do them hand tight then about 1/8 turn with a wrench they only need to be air tight it's not like they are holding anything in place

Hi guys, slightly off topic, but I'm looking for a 3/8 drive ratchet after my last Teng one mysteriously disappeared - has anyone got any good recommendations? I'm tempted by the halfords kit for £20, but it comes with 12 point sockets which arent any good to me.

Ah OK thanks I'll take a look at the one at Aldi

thanks.... I could've done with one of these over the last month... 3 big jobs done on the car.

Actually in town on Thursday... so will pick one of these up for future tinkerings... don't think I'll risk waiting and seeing if the price goes down though.... not in this neck of the woods....

shame the satnav is £90.... pretty desperate for a new one of those too...

You're most welcome.

Some people who own a Trade Card don't feel obliged to let others know this fact.

To be totally honest, some things you purchase aren't much cheaper than looking elsewhere, with the main exception being bulbs which are considerably cheaper.

This is in-store on thursday correct?
or is it all this week.
thanks
