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.
