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

    the best torque wrenches for there money are sykes pickavant
    they are made by norbar and are the best priced most accurate on the market
    halfords profesional are made by norbar as well i think but check first

    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:rock:)

    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!
