Torque wrench
« on: June 25, 2015, 09:34:00 pm »
Looking to buy a dial style torque wrench. Would like it to be  in Newton meter scale as that saves the time on conversion I have been looking at these.

The cdi one is like a $150 with a 4% accuracy and the snap on is almost $300 with 2% accuracy not sure how accurate I need to be with chainsaw stuff. But it does help to keep things from coming loose or stripping the threads. I have one from stihl now and i know something is not quite right with it. Talked to the local snap on tool guy and he say he can check the accuracy for me.

Have you checked on the Proto torque wrenches.   I do not have the dial type but the 3 I have from Proto seem to be of good quality.

I've had a Armstrong torque wrench all my life. Never given any trouble. But working on old chainsaws, there are some people that are either on the milt toast side or ham fisted?

We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Found a company called mountz that sells and services the torqueleader brand of wrench that I have now. Took me a few hours to find. Seems they make the ones for Stihl just a different color and badging.
