There’s a glossary at the end of this article to cover a few more technical terms.This new model from Park Tool offers metal mechanical components to give a highly positive and durable wrench.Its smaller size isn’t as comfortable in use as the Park or CDI, but its lower price makes up for that.The included bits are likely to go missing though, so maybe hold onto the ziplock bag it comes packaged in.The figures provided are those recorded after some moderate use of each, as there’s some evidence of ‘break-in’ period to what we assume is tightening of moving parts after sitting from manufacture.It’s worth pointing out that such a manual method of testing does have inconsistencies due to human input.

for this, i measured each tool with the same 5mm hex bit to see which is shortest: Finally, there’s the ‘clearance’ of the tool that matters.It's not ideal at low torques, but quite a nice cheap option for those seeking a torque wrench for 8-20Nm tightening It’s a hand tool you probably see recommended plenty in manuals and maintenance articles – the torque wrench.Simply put, this device measures and helps to control the tightening torque of a bolt.While I’ve tried to keep the testing as constant as possible, the speed and pressure applied to the wrench can indeed affect the measured torque, as does the actual interpretation of the torque set on each tool.The interpretation of set torque is indeed a large factor here, and although the tool may be calibrated correctly (typically within 4%), the error in setting it to the desired torque can greatly influence the outcome.
