    1/4 drive torque wrench?

    My K-D inch pound torque wrench has failed!

    I need a recommendation on a replacement.

    Thank you.

    I am satisfied with my NEIKO 03714A.

    I purchased and then gave away a TEKTON 1/4 Inch Drive.
    It only measured in one direction.

    Not worth the trouble in often cramped places.

    I have a Capri Model CP21075 that's 10-50 in lbs. Screwdriver style with a t-handle that snaps into the back for the higher settings. I'm very pleased with it.

    I picked up a San/Liang and it starts at 10 and ends at 70 and I have been happy with it to date.

    Snap On QTS135. Its range is 5-35 inlbs and is a screwdriver style with 1/4" ratchet type driver. Used frequently by aeronautical technicians. If it can fly planes....

    action screws in a bedded benchrest hunter rifle for instance, 35 in lbs isn't enough.

    Quite happy with it.

    On some of the drag race carbs we work with, the metering blocks are subject to warping and the 1/4-28 screws torque needs to be repeatable and accurate to prevent this. I picked up a Tekton TRQ21101 that is a dual-direction 10-150 lbs/in. range. Comparing it to a certified aircraft beam-style wrench, it's dead on the money.

    Like a lot of tools, repeatability is as important as the absolute accuracy.

    My 2 cents worth from the rainy, snowy, fly-over Northern Plains. -Al

    Had a post up a few months ago about torque values for barrels and action screws and what he had learned about them over the years. I wrote them down somewhere but who knows where??? I do remember it being an interesting read.
