Torque Wrench
« on: 11 November 2017, 14:02:09 »

I think I've busted my torque wrench...  :(

So I've been looking for a 28 - 210nm replacement and there are plenty on ebay.  A Sealey one caught my eye at 34.95.

Any recommendations?  ???  TIA!  :y

I use the Halfords ones personally.

Are you sure about those specs and price Tigger?


I have the Sealey TW1011, 3/8 drive that does 7 to 112Nm and costs 85 if you can't get a discount. It seems pretty good, but is a bit short if you're going to regularly use at the high settings. Doing XK cylinder head bolts with it was bloody hard work; by the time I'd finished I wished I had used the 1/2 drive Mac one that was a midnight requisition sometime ago ::)
