Anyone use one of these before?

Couldn't find it in the search. Do these need to be recalibrated?

These things look effin awesome! And only $40!!!

I saw that in the flyer too, looks "neat", but not sure if it's "gimmicky", kinda looks it.

Bought a cheap one at Princess Auto, regular $50, for $17.99 last week.

Was surprised, came with a sheet of paper, with hand written notes about it being calibrated, signed and dated by the person who actually did it. For the amount I'll use, figured it was ok.

Looks good, sounds fishy, but it's a Mastercraft....

Range from 20-99 ft-lb, not very useful for a ninja 250 at least (oil plug 15, real axle 97)

I dunno, you pay for quality with torque wrenches..

Might be good, just be realistic with the expectations of how accurate it really is..

I have never seen anything that spoke "quality" to me on the shelves

at a Princess Auto. To me, it all just seems like junk.

Well, at the very least you can use it to check the accuracy of your torque wrench without having to get it calibrated...
