Cheap Torque Wrench??

I just found this at the Jegs website... if this actually works and lasts it's well worth the $25. Includes an extension and 3/8 to 1/2 inch adapter all in a nice case. I bought on for my Jeep and one for the truck.

Harbor Freight has those basically exact ones for as low as $9.99 on sale. I got a 3/8 and 1/2 for the jeep.

I have those also and had them tested at PMEL, they work well...

Yep that looks identical to the one I bought from HFT and it's a good one, far better than its price would make most think it is. HFT sells them for $19.95 but they often go on sale for $9.95. They come with a lifetime warranty.

Another vote for the Harbor Freight torque wrench. Well worth the $10 or $15 I paid for it.

yup thats a HF wrench...and not priced well either. they're usually $10-15 at HF if you catch the sale right...

I have one. its a little short at times and serves as a backup to my craftsman.
