Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 633567 Torque Wrench 0.5 inch Drive 28-210 Nm (Tools & Hardware)
I ordered this item after normal working hours on Thursday the 17th of May 2012 and it arrived by courier on the morning of Monday the 21st of May 2012. The wrench was perfectly packaged and arrived undamaged and wrapped neatly and securely. Inside its handy, plastic storage box, it came complete with a 125mm 1/2" chrome vanadium extension bar and a 1/2"-3/8" converter as described on amazon.co.uk's website. Excellent service provided by amazon.co.uk. The quality of this wrench seems to be very high. It has a 1/2" drive. The chrome vanadium finish is flawless. The wrench is robustly made. The torque adjustments are made using the hand grip of the wrench, which has a locking mechanism at its base in the form of a locking nut with a 4mm hole drilled through it so that a piece of metal (I use an allen key) can be passed through it so that it can be tightened well enough to lock the torque setting in place. The torque settings are engraved on the shaft of the wrench. The settings are easily understood and adjustments can be made easily by rotating the hand grip clockwise to increase torque and anticlockwise to decrease torque. There are further finer torque increments engraved on the hand grip. How to use these increments is described in the instruction leaflet. The ratchet mechanism can be reversed. Personally, I would not use a torque wrench of any brand to undo nuts and bolts of any kind.
I have used the wrench only at one setting so far to tighten the wheel nuts of my car, and not only am I very impressed with the functioning of the device, but I am also extremely impressed with the look of it and how well it seems to have been made and put together. Although the inside mechanisms cannot be seen, the outside of the wrench looks fantastic. If it continues to work as well as it has so far and provides continued accurate functionality, and remains as good looking after being cleaned with a soft cloth and smeared with a little coating of clean oil after each use, I shall recommend this torque wrench to all would-be D.I.Y enthusiasts. The added bonus to purchasing this wrench at the very reasonable cost that it was is that it comes with a free forever guarantee, which is stated on the box. All you need to do to activate it, is go on line to Silverline Tool's website, enter some details about the purchase and part number of the wrench. You will then click on the download tab to download a PDF file to print off your lifetime guarantee. I keep the printed copy folded up inside the storage box that comes with the wrench along with the instructions... it is that simple. Brilliant, well done Silverline! So far, I am very happy with my new torque wrench.
Expert tip: Remember to store your torque wrench on or below its lowest torque setting.
