Read Practical Motorhome's review of the Draper 30357 torque wrench

Overview

Despite its smart looks, this tool is obviously in the budget league. However, it is impressively accurate for something costing just over £20. The Nm and lb ft scales are catered for, but the etched micrometer-style graduations make the lb/ft scale very fiddly to use and the decimalised intervals don’t help. Imagine trying to set 45lb/ft when the nearest mark on the tool is 36.9lb/ft! The adjuster gets very stiff when being turned to higher torque settings, too.

Price £23.
