Digital Torque Wrench Recommendations


Expedition Leader
Just a follow up, I am really enjoying my CDI Precision Instruments beam type torque wrench. It's extremely easy to use accurately and get consistent results. However, the 1/2" drive version is quite large at about 26" long and not all that well suited for torquing head bolts (its big), so if anyone else is reading this, I'd recommend the 3/8" drive version unless 100 ft/lbs isn't quite enough torque for you.

And just for fun, I've compared lug nut torque settings established with the CDI compared to the Harbor Freight, and it's right there with it. I still don't trust it, but it hasn't been off even a little, and makes for a nice addition to the trail tools kit.
