    dial torque wrench

    What are you all using for a dial peak/hold torque wrench. I don't want to spend $500 on a snap on and am currently looking at the 300 inch/lb CDI for about $150

    That's pretty much the starting point for one and I'll use it so little.

    I bought one of theses and it works great I checked calibration through out the range and it was spot on. It also goes low enough to verify SC slip.

    There is nothing like a dial gauge period. I Had my seekonk that's nearly 30 Years old

    That's Fing SLICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks guys

    I have 4 torque wrenches already and didn't want to drop $200 +. What beer suggested is the perfect solution for anyone in my position and a viable solution for anyone who doesn't already own a dial torque wrench. NOW, to get my 1lb of boost back!

    I have used it down to 5-10ft/lbs and it was still accurate verified with a calibrated wrench. Anytime I use it for critical torque I always verify with a calibrated wrench and for the two years ive had it its been spot on.
