I have a 40 year old 1/2" snap-on clicker that they refused to calibrate 10 years ago. It reads 44# on 48# of torque from a good beam wrench. (about 10% low) clickers are often able to be used in out of position bolts that you would never be able to see with either a beam or a dial torque wrench. In the mid to late 1960"s the US Army taught that the dial was the most accurate, beam next, and clicker last; but the clicker is the easiest to use. I guess that may still be right. I don"t have a new digital, but as fragile as some electronics are, I am not sure I am missing much! But I am sure that any torque wrench is superior to no torque wrench. I check clickers against any unabused beam.

I just had my 45 year old Snap On fixed and re calibrated last year by my Snap On guy . The lock went bad on the handle and he said that they probably would not be able to fix it , But to both of us they surprised us by sending it back FIXED and it works as good as it did when i first bought it . That wrench has put a lot of engines together from Maw's grocery getter to some vary wild rides .
