Finally have some room cleared to be able to work on my LT. I need suggestions on which torque wrench and lift to buy. Thanks.
To Dedgar's point, I have a Craftsman torque wrench with the external ring. Over time, the numbers have worn off the ring to the point where you can no longer read many of them. I would never purchase another Craftsman torque wrench with the ring on it.I have two Craftsman torque wrenches. I bought them specifically because they both have the same item in them that I prefer.
It is a window with a dial inside that tells you what torque you have adjusted the wrench to numerically. The torque value shows in both foot pounds and Newton meters. The second torque wrench in inch-pounds and the equivalent in Newton meters
I don't have to try and figure out what the Newton meter value is on that external spinning collar on the Snap-On or other wrenches in the same style. I see it numerically in the window under the equivalent ft/lb value.
I do have to include that I bought these before Sears sold the Craftsman line of tools to Lowes. I know Lowes still sells the Craftsman line. I haven't looked to see if the torque wrenches have changed.
I own ten torque wrenches from cheap Harbor Freight, Snap-On, Craftsman, and Precision Instruments, and others. Most work reasonably well. I have tested all of mine against a Snap-On torque calibration tester and they all were spot on. (Even the cheap Harbor Freight brands!)Finally have some room cleared to be able to work on my LT.
