Eastwood 3/8 Inch Drive Digital Electronic Torque Wrench

Product Review (submitted on April 6, 2013):

Old school and was not sure I would be able to learn how to operate a 'Digital Electronic' torque wrench; however, after reading the instructions a couple of times, and with a little practice, I was able to operate the wrench in a short period of time.

I used the torque wrench to reassemble a small block engine and very please with the ease I was able to operate the tool. I own a 'click' type torque wrench but I found it difficult to establish whether I reached the desired torque value, particularly a the lower setting, There are a couple of features I particularly like with this tool; the audible and visual indicator, and the 5 preset function. Entered the torque values from the shop manual and set each of the 5 settings with the desired value and then it was just a matter of selecting which setting I wanted to use for that particular task. I also set the 'preset function' in a progression sequence where I could start torqueing in increments starting at the low value and working up until I reached the desired torque. The item also comes with a sturdy case which I consider a bonus. I would recommend this tool to a friend.
