Read Practical Motorhome's review of the Screwfix 18289 torque wrench

Overview

This is a budget torque wrench, yet it comes with a case and extension thrown in. Logic tells us that a precision tool this cheap will be inaccurate, but our tests show otherwise. The 3% average error is within the standard’s tolerance, and it's very accurate at medium and high settings, masking poor results lower down the scale. Alongside the Nm scale, this metric-only tool sports the oddball kg.m scale, which is so poorly laid out it’s practically unusable.

Price £17.98.
