I have a choice between 2 snap-on torque wrenches.
One torque's between 25 -100lbft , and the other 50-250lbft. Which one am I better off buying. It seems as though most thing are 50 or above but a couple of things are below.

I would get both :D :D

Seriously I have only ever needed a wrench that goes to 250lb/ft once , for the IRS axle nuts.

Also torque wrenches should only be used in the "middle" according to our experts here, so the 25-100 is really a 40-85 (approx).

There was a very good thread on torque wrenches a month back.

I just bought a new Sears 20-150 ft lb for $45 on sale just a week ago. I had a 30-year old beam type prior - didn't trust it, too old. 20-150 should be good for 99% of what you do. Know it's certainly not Snap On quality, but is adequate.

BOTH, That would be over $400.00 bucks. Luckily the SNAP-ON guy is my nieghbor and will sell to me at cost $140.00 and $160.00.
Thats a lot of money for both.

Thanks for the replies.
