Can anyone recommend a good, low cost torque wrench set? Cheers
Ice Toolz make one. Will need to buy the socket set separately though.
Very pleased with my "Norbar TruTorque™ TT20 ¼" with certificate of calibration. Proudly made in England." Bought via Amazon for £78. Cheap tools have their place, but for something as important as the correct torque, I don't want to trust a dodgy setting on my handlebars ... A cheaper one is available from Giant for about £55 (and is rebranded elsewhere as well), albeit without any certification - Bike Radar review http://tinyurl.com/9r3j6ds
I have a big cheapie I use on my car and bigger stuff. I have compared the settings with other people's wrenches and it is near enough for the uses I put it to.
For my bike I have a shorter Britool that goes up to 40 ft pounds. I have a friend who has his own engineering works and he calibrated it for me so I am confident to use it on the bike.
Had mine for a while now and it does what it says on the box, sorted
Looks spot on that thanks smokes moo. Think I'll put that on my xmas list
I bought the Park Tools Beam ones and find they are well suited to my level of mechanical ability.
