Looking at getting a metric torque wrench, more so specifically off eBay. Any suggestions? I need somethign along 0-200 ft/lbs. Thanks!
I agree but at the moment just need a say 3-250 ft/lbs one.
A torque wrench that has a full scale of 250 Lb-ft is not going to be usable at 3 lb-ft, even if the scale goes that low. The accuracy of a torque wrench is expressed in percentage of full scale, and a 2% rating would yield an error band of +/- of 5 lb-ft., kinda tough to set 3 lb-ft with that much error...... The only practical solution is to have a wrench for the "low end" and a wrench for the "high end".
I used Snap on torque wrenches on aircraft in the Navy for years and like the guys said you should have at least two different sizes. I would look into a 1/4, 3/8, and a 1/2 drive so you have one for all the different settings. If you need up to 250lbs of torque a 3/8inch will do the job, 1/2inch get up there pretty high in foot lbs.
Ok I just bought a SNAP ON TOOLS OJR-3200 1/2"DR TORQUE WRENCH off ebay for $50, its a 1/2 drive and if it doesnt work out for me Ill just eBay it. Hopefully it does me well, now hopefully I have the right sockets for this already lol.
Metric Torque wrench would read in Newton-Meters or Kilograms-Centimeter not foot-pounds or inch-pounds. So I guess this would go with your other metric ratchets? Did you want the right handed or left handed model???
Wait........ would it be ft*lbs but not lbs/ft? Just stirrrr'n da pot.
