Was looking at getting a torque wrench for the odd time I'd be using one but pricy enough for the use it'd get. Thought I'd throw a shout out here to see if anyone is selling one. Cheers.
I'm not selling one, but if you have the option I'd recommend going with a "beam-type" torque wrench - because the click-type ones don't work for left-hand thread, where the wrench is going in the loosening direction, when installing English-threaded bottom brackets or cups.
My click type torque wrench works in either direction, but wouldn't go low enough for bike size fasteners.
My Lifeline torque wrench works in both directions.
Very interesting, my Draper does not. I had no idea some did & some didn't - thanks!
Does yours just not do torque settings when turning anti clockwise? I guess that would make sense as you don't generally need torque setting when loosening a nut/bolt.
Is it for the high end of the scale or the lower, like Stems/Seat post clamps etc?
Yeah just to adjust stems, handlebars, seatposts..nothing mre fancy...don't do the technical stuff too well!
