Good in lb torque wrench?

I need a good one for a decent price. Preferably clicker style. I was looking at matco and snap on but something a lil cheaper would be nice.

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Body:
Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

If you can afford a nice brand one do it, otherwise the Harbor Freight one has been holding up well for me for a year and is very inexpensive.

They have a 1/2" and a 3/8"

I'm bout to pull the crank out of a bike. I want something more trust worthy than harbor freight, I do love that place tho.

Its true the snap on or Matco would be worth it in the long run, but that craftsman is looking nice.

I have a harbor freight one and I'm not convinced it's very accurate. I would go with the best one you can afford for sure, especially if you are doing engine internal work.

Re: Good in lb torque wrench?

Just spend the extra money and get the snap-on or craftsman one. this is a tool you'll use almost everytime you work on something mechanical and it's worth having one that is gonna hold up, be accurate, and have a lifetime warranty. I know snap-on and craftsman both have a lifetime warranty.

I hate you luck bastard.


I was in a jam and needed one quick so I got the craftsman. If I would have had the time & funds I would have gotten that^^^
