    Which one of these torque wrenches do I need?

    I have some vouchers for this store that I need to use.

    I want to buy a torque wrench to measure the slip on my RUDE2 SC.

    Which one of the first 3 wrenches in the link do I need?

    Thanks

    I say #3. Look at skoepp's thread about shimming the sc. The last post by Aussie RXP.

    Cant really see if that has a proper dial, to read from. Maybe none of those are any good?

    It won't have a dial. You will feel a click and the wrench will give a little when you reach the right torque. They work very good and are more accurate then the old dial type.

    The required torque is set by turning the handle. It's actually very easy to use. You will like it.

    but I want to measure the slip initially, not set it, so surely a dial type would be better as I can see the 'rolling torque' and exactly where the sc is slipping?

    You've gotta point there. I didn't think about that. Someone else will have to chime in cause I've never checked slip before.

    I check slip with one From Grainger. Dial type 3/8's.
    Mine shows slip from 0 - 50 ft/lb.
    Works good, no problems as of today.. I compared to a sc that GH set for me and seemed to be spot on.

    I know some others use the click type.

    A dial type would be better as mentioned but #3 will work. I have used that type many times without any problems. You can find the slip moment by starting low on the setting and working your way up until it slips instead of clicks.
