Man they got some cheap stuff. I wonder how long my $15 torque wrench will last.:rolleyes:
It might last a very long time. I would be more concerned about how accurate it is, rather than how long it will last.

Hopefully it's accurate and will last a long time. Let us know!

where is there a harbor freight? I should go pick up some ghetto tools
Theres a few. Just search google, their site has all their stores listed.

Yea, I was thinking about that too. It can't be too terribly inaccurate. As long as it's close. I had a realy crappy one that had the bar that flexed as you torqued, which couldnt have been very accurate since I had to bend it back to 0 every time.

There is one out in NE Portland just off I-5, forget the exact exit (think Lombard? Dunno) and another one in Milwaukie on Mclaughlin (99e)@ concord..
I have had some HF stuff last a long time...and some make me wish I had bought some other imported junk...

My 1/2" finally took a shit and started skipping teeth after 3 years. It was used quite a bit. I definately got my $20.00 out of it. My 3/8 and 1/4 haven't been used as much and are doing fine. Compared to the craftsman prices at $120.00 a pc, I'll keep buying them every 3-10 years. I highly doubt they are as accurate, but anything is better than nothing. I'm not rebuilding engine's with mine, just simple dumb shit that most people "feel" out (lugs/suspension/ect).
