my wifey used to work at Sears so I became a Craftsman junkie by osmosis but hard to argue with that life time gurantee and you'll likely need it with an indexed type torque wrench

Are you sure you get a lifetime warranty on Sears torque wrenches?

Yes; well I havn't tested it on torque wrenches yet, but the lifetime warranty covers all "hand" tools that have have made since 1927

I gotcha!

According to the web site, and from what I've heard, it's one year on the craftsman torque wrenches. Some of their more expensive ones are two year however. Then again, some of their cheaper ones are 90 days.

ok, so i got a bead on a couple of wrenches:

1/4in 0-75in-lb wrench vs. 3.8in 0-150in-lb.

creeper, I believe you recommended a 0-150in-lb. but in a 1/4. i am guessing the 0-75in-lb doesn't go high enough and am eyeballin the 0-150 - correct? and does the 3/8 hurt? (wouldn't think so)

if this all works out, which it probably won't , i will have two good wrenches with ranges matching the suggestions of Don Creeper
