    I've had one of these for about twenty years. I use it mainly for wheels bolts, but it's never let me down

    This is what I use does the job spot, also comes with lifetime warranty. They do them in 1/2 drive but I use the 3/8 drive for spark plugs and anything else that needs torqued up from 19-110NM.

    I have the two Halford Professional torque wrenches (8-60Nm and 60-300Nm) giving me an overall torque range of 8-300Nm. They are very good quality too and never let me down. Use them for everything from oil filters/drain plugs to wheel bolts.

    I hate Halfords, but their pro range tools are great, and I too just got the 60-300nm wrench....for £8 (birthday vouchers)

    I have a Norbar one, it does what it says on the tin.

    btw always remember to "unwind" ~ANY Torque wrench once you've finished using it.

    I have the Halfords professional too, and it's been great, it gets used pretty much every month, to torque the bolts on a CNC lathe!
