And todays bargain is.....

Been to Merry Hill and picked up this little beauty. Torque wrench, 2-24nm on a 1/4" drive. £19.99 from Clas Ohlson down by Asda. They had a 1/2" drive one too, 40-200nm (I think) £29.99...... But I've already got one of them..
Bargain :0)

Is it any good?

How long you had it? Was a tad dubious for that price but thought I'd chance it....

torque is cheap

looks like a good deal stealth, not to put a damper on it phil , but torque wrenches need re-calibrating every 6 months ,.

well

I work on mine being rarely used and the spring being released after use. Only gets used 3 or 4 times a year so probably won't be too bad. I doubt time will have too much of an effect. Thanks for the heads up though - if I see somewhere which calibrates them I'll get it done.


EDIT: Actually it has just been serviced so I can check it against the current rear axle nut. It's supposed to be 86nm so if I check it at 80 and it doesn't click then I'll know it's reading low.

phil

a couple of NM out is not too bad depending on what you are tightening . but look at it this way , would you trust a petrol station tyre guage to be accurate?

true

however the dealer is a respectable one so I'd trust their torque wrenches to be calibrated same as yours.
