    Cool Torque wrench

    Hey Guys

    Can anybody suggest where I can purchase a Dial type torque wrench for checking the slip moment on my Seadoo Supercharger. It`s been in the boat now for about 12 hours since the rebuild. Just wanting to check it`s okay.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Hope somebody can point me in the right direction here?

    You can purchase one at Sears or @ Home Depot.... if you want something a little cheaper if you have a Harbor Freight in your area thats the place to find it...

    You want that Torque wrench to be one of the most accurate tool you have. If you cheap out on it you can have issues with bolts on your ski either toqrue something too much or less. Craftsman is ok, I would look into Matco, snap on etc. They may be expensive but they can be recalibrated and you will have it forever.

    true, but beleive it or not the craftsman torques wrenches the ones that are about 70 bux aren`t so bad for low torque yeilds, now if you were wrenching on a set of Blue thunder heads or sumptin, then...

    yes, Snap-on is very good, I use this for higher applications, 50# and above...

    Also take note that good quality torque wrench requires calibration after a certain time.

    All my snap-on's are due for sure.
