I have a really nice S&K 3/8" in/lb wrench, has worked well for me.

Can't find it on the web, but I think it goes from 15 to 180 in. lbs or so.

There are a shitload of Snap On and Mac tools on eBay every day.

You pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

Buy a nice one and be set for life.

Thanks
CA Stu

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
It kinda all depends on what you use them for. A 0-150 in.lb. 3/8" drive? Now that just seems odd. Is that a typo on your part?

Snap On and Mac are too trendy = expensive!

I am working on getting a nice one for my price range; wish me luck!

My concept of the optimized set would be a 1/4 drive 20-200 inch pound (small fastener, small wrench) and a 3/8 drive 10 to 150 foot pound (medium fastener, medium wrench) wrench.

The idea of a 3/8 drive inch pound is... odd to me. A 3/8 drive that goes to 17 ft lbs?... What the hell is that for? Leverage?

agreed, but the only 1/4 that currently is a good price only goes to 75in-lb. thought that might not be enough range to cover me on the 640a... should I wait?

the other one I am trying to get to complete the set is a 0-100ft-lb. 1/2in drive... but the price is right

If it were me... I'd get a decent 3/8", 5-75ft.lb. to start, and wait until you can swing a 1/4 in.lb. Just use a little CS on the low torque fasteners.

I think I may have already said that once.

dont have a great price on the 3/8 5-75ft.lb... i guess that means a wait recommendation.

hm. i just can't see why these good deals wouldnt work well for the 640a. the quality and precision of the pieces is exemplary always worried about missing a good deal

"a little CS"... common sense? careful screwin'?

thanks for the help creeper; I do use a 1/4 drive as often as I can and take it easy on the little guys.

BTW, who knows what I would have ended up with w/out any help...

I reckon mine's been pretty handy.. Wish I had it handy so I could post a pic, but I'm here at work....

Just going by memory, I think mine goes 20-250 in. lbs...

Cheers

Thanks Stu,

I just won an auction on this:

CDI torque wrench
0-150 in. lbs.
Model 1502ldin
new with case



the 3/8in drive isn't a liability with the small stuff? i agree with creeper that it seems like overkill. but this one was the right price so i couldnt pass it up.
