Why two wrenches? Cause a ft.lb wrench at a low value setting is not very accurate. 5 ft.lbs. might be 60 in.lbs.... or it might be 30 or 90 in.lbs. Unless of course you spend more money... then they get more accurate.
two-fitty!!! no can do mang... don't have that kind of budget for BOTH. At least if I get one then I will be half way to proper no?

EDIT: oops, misunderstood...

that one you linked says 20-150 IN.lb -

I need to be careful about the ft/in biz...

So how about one of these:

haven't checked the price yet but the 1/4 drives are these:

1/4"
20-150in.lb (that's only 12.5ft.lb max)
5-75ft.lb (supposedly only down to 60in.lb but I note your warning )

which would be more versatile for the 640a?

there is also this cool thing:

its like a ratchet adapter that converts them to a torque wrench!

but only a 3/8 drive and only preset limits
