That's why click-types need to be calibrated once in a while.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWhat is there to calibrate in the click types?.

Just a little square key (that clicks off center when the selected torque is reached) between 2 flats in the rod head and a compression spring behind it. the torque value setting lines on the handle are approximate at best.

A couple lbs under or over wont harm nothing

Where can one go to get a wrench calibrated? I have two Craftsman click-type wrenches that are probably 20 years old and have never been calibrated, one in 3/8" drive and one in 1/2" drive. They are the type that have two little windows in the handle, one for Ft-Lb and one for Nm and you simply rotate the handle until the desired torque value is displayed in the window.

Several years ago Farm Show Magazine did a complete article on how to calibrate a Torque Wrench. I don't remember the issue number, but it might be worth checking out.

It will probably cost more for you to get the tools calibrated than they are worth. I work for a company with a calibration lab. I can carry one in and check it on the tool rooms "bump checker" device or I can take it up to the calibration room and if they have a slack moment, they will check it for me.

If you're near a reasonably large city, there are probably calibration labs that can do the job for you (check yellow pages for "calibration service"). Or you could mail it to a lab if there are none nearby. In a pinch, you can calibrate it yourself. Google "torque wrench calibration" and you'll get plenty of hits.
