    What torque wrench to buy?

    I want to invest in a good torque wrench to replace my old one. Something I can use both on my car (70+ lbs.) but also something that can be accurate at lower settings for the PWC. Anyone know of something to get around town, like Sears or whatever?

    Snap On. Get one with the dual rods so you don't have to zero every time when you are done.

    The electronic ones might be a bit of overkill. It depends on how much you use it.

    I'll check into the snap on. That pic was from www.snapon.com and it seems that you have to register to get pricing and other stuff.

    That is new. You used to be able to get the price.

    Snap on is the best, but it is VERY spendy. I'm guessing a mechanical click type 1/2 drive that goes up to 120 ft lbs is $250+ (I can't remember what I paid for mine)
