Tractor Vet made a **GREAT** point, and I'm sure most of you missed it. Get your torque wrench calibrated!!!

Also, be sure you use the wrench properly, or you're fooling yourself. If the bolt/nut is not turning, you're not measuring torque. Loosen the bolt and then use the torque wrench to snug the nut/bolt to the proper value. If you stop, you might have to loosen again a bit, befor torqing again.

The OP brought it up right in the first post.

Don't knock it 'til you try it, but I have read good things about the HF digital torque adapter. Most guys keep it in the tool box just to keep their torque wrench honest.

I have a Snap-On 1/2" from a garage sale and a HF 3/8" The Snap-On truck checked both a couple years back and they both passed. If the storage boxes didn't have the names molded into them you couldn't tell which was HF and which was Snap-On.

I RARELY have found enough room to use one of the beam type torque wrenches.
