Which torque wrench screwdiver?

For $50 or less. I have it down between the Wheeler ...



or the Weaver ...



The Weaver is ~ $3-$5 more and comes in a hard case.

Pleas advise. Thanks.

    I like my FAT wrench, but have never tried the Weaver, So I can't compare.

    The FAT has positive detents in about 1/2 inch/lb increments.

    Snap On makes the best low range torque wrences, but also very expensive! Sears sells a screw driver type that has a large dial on it. Looks just like the Snap On, and carries the same accuracey rating (5%). I found one on Ebay a few years ago for $60 delivered! Took it to work to have the readings checked, and it was within one inch-pound all the way thru the scale. The dial is much better than the ones that break over unless it's a specialized beam type that only Snap On sold (real expensive). I'd be shopping Ebay for a good one.

    I have a Snap-On, it's adjustable from 5-40in/lb IIRC. Hell yes I was willing to pay ~$200 for a reliable, repeatable torque driver. You know what "they" say: "Buy once, cry once".
