I had a half inch snap-on one, worst thing I ever bought, put me off digital ones. Good price for that one though.

^ I found this okay to use but being use to the click type takes some getting use to.
Very good if changing settings frequently as so quick also very good on 3/8 & 1/4 torque wrenches for low torque settings. got be careful with snapon stuff as a lot of it not that special & brand addicts never realize as refuse use anything else :-S

Yeah I bought it years ago thinking it would be the best and I was wrong. I have a wide selection of brands as no one makes the best of everything. I'm more of a mac tools person really.

I need to get a new torque wrench, undecided about digital or not.

^ digital is nice if doing a lot of varying torques & smaller fixings.
probably just as well go for a sensible quality mechanical one.
I have a 1/4 drive digital & may get a 3/8 digital but happy with current 1/2 Britool mechanical currently.
