This wrench from Laser is not a bad all-rounder, despite lacking an imperial scale. It is accurate and the adjuster is easy to turn, even at high settings. Because it uses only the Nm scale, the graduations etched into the shaft are at sensible intervals and each audible click of the adjuster represents 1 Nm. The ratchet is reversible, but it is fixed in place, so the tool can only measure torque clockwise. Also, at this price it should have more than 24 positions.
