    Torque wrench suggestions

    I need to replace my 1/2" drive torque wrench. I started looking on line and came accross a few brands I was really familiar with. I also came accross a bunch of familiar brands with crappy reviews. Anyone have a suggestion for a torque wrench for under~ $150. Capri was one of the brands I saw that looked like it had a decent option but I'm not familiar with them.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks

    I've said it once and I'll say it again...HF $9.99 with cupin. I have been using mine sine 2011. No problems. Yes I was hesitant at first, but it does the job.

    Hard to beat a $10 price tag. I always get a little paranoid though when I see similar tools for 10x the price and up. Always makes me wonder why lol.

    That's sweet. Have you tested to see if it's dialed in pretty close?

    If you have a Lowe’s nearby the kobalts are great. Lifetime no questions asked warranty. If it breaks drive to Lowe’s and swap it out. I’ve done it with other kobalt tools like damaged sockets that were clearly on an impact gun that should not have been, but no issue swapping them out.
