Torque Wrench Question

What is the best adjustable setting torque wrench for the range and hunting pack? Prefer under $100 in case it gets lost.

Re: Torque Wrench Question

Look on midway and find them. I have a fat wrench and it works pretty well for field adjustments.

It is in Inch pounds and is fairly compact.

There are more accurate ones but they cost more than you want to pay. (The Fat Wrench is
around $70.00.

Re: Torque Wrench Question

Wera makes a nice one, around $100. Got mine from MSC. Occasionally on sale for $75. They make several torque 'drivers'. Mine is 'inch pounds', also. I never carry mine 'to the field' unless I've traveled a long distance (like out of state) and then I pack a small tool kit and it is left in camp (gunsmithing in the field isn't recommended).

That's more or less what I was wanting it for. I wasn't real clear.

Re: Torque Wrench Question

I like Sears Craftsman.........never had a problem with mine. With any torque wrench.....after you are finished using it, back off the adjustment past "zero".
Leaving tension on the spring will make it go out of calibration and you won't get an accurate reading.
