torque wrench?

Recommended Posts

i have been using a tired old torque wrench and i just bought a new bike and it did not seem right to go at it with a such a rusty old wrench. I was wondering were to find a good one.

i have been to sears and they say they do not carry them i have also been to auto zone they do not have them either.

do i have to get it out of a magazine?

Good thinking not using that old torque wrench. It's probably out of calibration by now anyway.

Sears definitely carries torque wrenches, but probably not the 1/4" drive model you'll want for any engine work. For the 3/8" drive model, make Sears show you their tool catalog and order one from there.

Now head over to your local machine shop, or decent car garage, and ask 'em what day & time the Matco or Snap-On guy usually shows up. Return and order a nice 1/4" drive torque wrench off of him, or buy one off of E-Bay.

I bought a nice K-D Tools 3262 1/4" drive off ebay for about $50. Works great for all the little stuff on my bike....cam, triple clamps, axle pinch bolts, etc.

PROTO torque wrenches --> snap-on quality at 1/2 the price.

i found this vendor via a google search, but i'm sure you can find better prices than this...
