I feel that they are probably to good to be true, but would be mighty handy if they are any good.

Yea they would be good in the tool kit, it would be good to know how accurate it actually is. the one i bought came with a calibration test results.

The trick to anything using electronics for calibration, is to use new batteries.

Mate I don't think you can go past norbar tension wrenches, sh!t all over snap-on for price and quality imo. I've got 2 of them that have copped a flogging for years get calibrated once a year and never out of cal. Best tools I've ever bought, bit pricey but well worth it if you are going to use it a bit. Repco do norbar wrenches but branded Repco, might be worth a look.

It's a good price if it's any good. My 0 -50 ft/lbs Norbar wrench (with calibration certificate) was about 4 times that a number of years ago. Never had it re calibrated though, where do you get that done?

Agree 100% being in an industry that I use torque wrenches everyday and norbar are by far worth the outlay.
