Hi all, any ideas on a good torque wrench for £50 and under? Thanks
I can recommend the Halfords range but they are over £50 more like £80
There are Teng tool ones on eBay and i quite like the Teng stuff.
I brought mine from eBay
Good range accurate n sturdy
I got one from Lidl a few months back, works fine, looks quite sturdy, don't know how accurate without checking against a brand make.
£19.00. Deal done.
Teng is one of the best x
Ideally you really need two torque wrenches to cover all jobs on a car. A 1/4 inch will do the smaller fiddly stuff and the 1/2 inch the heavy duty stuff.

If you want a slightly smaller 3/8 wrench to cover smaller torque settings

I have 2 Teng angular torque wrenches to cover the torque range I need. They are excellent and come in decent cases too. I keep the bigger one in the boot for wheel changes.
I am sorry to resurrect the group again. I am in need of a torque wrench also, mainly for wheel lug nuts and suspension stufff. I don't know which torque range I should buy. Would a torque wrench for 40 Nm to 200 Nm be okay for me ? Which torque range do you suggest? Thanks in advance
