    Can anyone recommend this? I've been using Wera tools for a while and I do have their 1/2" hammer ratchet which is nice but it was expensive. The C1 is even more so.

    Would anyone recommend any other torque wrenches?

    I've changed my mind, would cost far too much to have a few of these to have a good range. Anyone used the draper TWs?

    Have a look at Machine Mart (www.machinemart.co.uk) and check out the Clarke range of torque wrenches.

    If it's just for occasional use, I think any torque wrench from a known brand would be fine. I've got a draper one, does the job as far as I can see

    Halfords 2001 range for around £80 - calibration service available too.
    (Not that I've ever had mine done o_O)

    Look out for the Aldi one that comes on offer now and again.

    Lets hope they are better than some try squares I bought from there - excellent for marking out right angles at 88 deg :eek:
    The vernier caliper was useless too.
