I actually saw an independant test of a bunch of torque wrenches (think it was on you tube) that raved about the horror freight wrench. Said it was as accurate as a snap on. I am not in any way comparing the quality of the two, but for an occasional use, i am happy with mine. Just make sure to un-dial the setting before you put it away.
Any micrometer wrench. (Twist to set). The split beam type , like the Snap on wrenches, don't have to be returned to zero. No spring to stretch. Those are sold by Precision Instruments and are a pretty good tool. Not cheap compared to Craftsman or Harbor Freight. I came from a dealership backround and was a MAC dealer for 28 years. I believe in spending more for certain quality tools.Take the tension off of the torque wrench spring. . If not the spring will lose tension causing inaccurate readings. Always been that way with any torque wrench that uses a spring. The Snap-on HD type has a lever to relieve the tension on the spring. The twist style don't.
