    Need a Torque wrench? I found the DEAL for everyone.

    Guys, I have been looking for the Best all around torque wrench set that would be the best for or ski's and SCer's in or ski's. And I have found it.
    I did a lot of research and it has taken me about 3 months to just buy one, but I found a awesome deal.

    If ya'll have done research you will know that Precision Instruments MAKES most of the Torque wrenches for the NAME brand company's! YES it is true. Does this look familar?

    http://www.webbikeworld.com/r3/torqu...que-wrench.htm

    How about this?

    http://www.webbikeworld.com/r3/torque-wrench/

    Notice that they have a Retail value of around $400 bucks for them both. And a Spec of 1% or 2% accuracy.

    Anyway I was searching the major tool companies and found one set that came to me. It was MAC Tools. Mac Tools had got a contract with Jesse James to run a Product line and it floped bad. Anyway I had found the Mac tools made a Jesse James torque wrench set and I had Called MAC tools direct and had asked them if there Jesse James Set was made by Precision Instruments like all the rest and he said yes all of there torque wrenches were made buy them. They had a retail value of over $450 bucks! Anyway Look what they go for.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Mac-Tools-Jesse-...QQcmdZViewItem

    and this one
    http://cgi.ebay.com/BRAND-NEW-MAC-TO...QQcmdZViewItem

    Notice the Similarities to the ones up top and snap ons? I paid $135 Shipped to my door for my case and both torque wrenches and it is Kick ass.

    Theses two torque wrenches will do everything and DAM accurate at that and no need to spend a ton of money on them or buy USED on ebay theses are BRAND NEW Kick a$$ Torque wrenchs, and come with certificate of accurancy.

    Anyway I hope this helps and most will say a dial type torque wrench is best for the SCer clutch slip test.

    Thanks........

    that is a good buy. but a 150 in/lb is better suited for the range of the SC's clutches because accuracy is 2% of the torque range of the wrench. A 300 will work fine but not as accurate or easy to read. Is it a 300-0-300 or 0-300? The one direction 300 in/lb uses the full dial and is pretty easy to read.

    It is a 0-300-0 and remember the kit comes with both torque wrenches.
    It is as accurate as you need For sure. Top notch.

    it's for sure a bargain, I think that I spent more than that for my 150 in/lb Snap-On which looks identical to yours except mine is all chrome.

    Yes, I know and notice your snap on is identical to the first link. Precision Instruments makes most of the name brand guys torque wrenches.
