Posted August 28 - AM I have about ten torque wrenches, if not more. When I built car engines for a living, my boss wouldn't even let me keep the cheaper wrenches in the shop. I could only use the Proto, Snap-On and Mac, and they got calibrated every six months. A previous job had torque testers. I don't remember the tolerance, but my Snap-On and Mac wrenches the most expensive were out of spec, out of the box.
If you don't leave it wound up, use it as a breaker bar, or a baseball bat, that HF wrench will do the job for as often as most people need it.
Would I use it to build an engine? To torque lug nuts on a car, or an AR barrel nut?

Posted August 28 - AM "Horrible Freight" tools are not for the professional mechanic but they are fine for the cash strapped enthusiast who might need a one time use, throw away tool. Sometimes you get lucky and they last.
I have had the same torque wrench pictured in the original post in good working use here and there for 15years. Cash strapped at age 18 it got me through my first Beetle build. I also have a breaker bar that broke on the first nut a year ago. Thats why asked about the lifetime guarantee.
Might as well gamble a second go at it. Need an account? Register now!

I have it in all three sizes. I dont use much unless i am torquing wheel lugs. L2: Beginner.
Quality is better than you'd expect. Definitely worth the price. L4: Apprentice. I use expensive torque wrenches at work all the time. Have these at home in three sizes. They do the job and no complaints other than they aren't as nice in your hand in terms of grip and finish. Don't use them as a breaker bar!
