Perfectly adequate for home use,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Draper 34487 1/2-Inch Square Drive 0-21 kg/m A-Type Torque Wrench (DIY & Tools)
I've had one of these for years, which only broke when testing the torque on some wheel nuts that an idiot tyre fitter had put on with an air-gun. This torsion-bar type are perfectly adequate for occasional home use. Maybe not as 'sexy' as the click-type, but those are a lot more expensive and require periodical calibration, even when they are NOT used on a regular basis, as calibration can drift just with the sort of heat/cold cycling likely to be encountered in a domestic garage. Apart from maybe metal hardening over many years of use these cannot go off calibration, as it is a moments work to check the pointer is on zero before using it. You do need to watch the pointer against the scale of course, rather than listening for a click, but that is a small price to pay.
