torque wrench

gonna be getting one soon any suggestions SNap-On is pretty dope (duh) really want that electronic/digital one but I could spend that money else where I am leaning towards the craftsmen product but havent ruled out a more "traditional" snap-on any suggestions. I am thinking the lower end of the spectrum 0-80 or so lb/ft

I bought mine at a Pawn shop...I have a Craftsman that is really nice and works well. I think it was $12.00. If you are going to buy Strap-On, atleast buy it off Ebay or at a Pawn shop. I really like their stuff, along with Matco and Mac, but their prices off the truck are terrible.

I've got the craftsman, it's done what I needed it for, can't beat the price with the warranty.

I have a Husky (the company that used to make craftsmen). But I would sugest getting one in that goes up to at least 150 if not 200ftlbs, mine goes upto 250.

Get the really cheap bar type craftman. They don't go out of calibration and they are much easier to control.
