Re: Which torque wrench and lift to buy?
I have a Tekton, a Husky and a Neiko which have different ranges
The Tekton are guaranteed for life.
I lost one of the screws holding the head of my Tekton wrench. I sent them a picture and they sent me a new one right away,
I have Red Rock lift from Princess Auto in Canada. I think it's also available under different names.
It's a compact lift that can be folded and stored away when not needed. The table ones are basically fixed and use a car space.
It works manually or with a compressor.
It is too narrow to put the bike on the center stand, so I made myself an adapter that I can install when needed.
One other advantage is that you can work closer to the bike.
It has the same foot base as a regular table
The only draw back is that you cannot ride the bike on it and I need someone to help me when I want to load it on it. (Which is also safer) Unloading is easy.
IMHO The forward anchor points could be more forward since this bike should be tied down at the forks and not the handle bars. Although putting the bike on the center stand moves it back and puts the anchor points in a better position.
If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.
