Cost V's Quality

Some of the most frequently asked questions that I get are:

Is this Torque wrench any good?
What Torque Wrench do you recommend?
How much does a decent Torque Wrench cost?

Torque Wrench Cost vs Quality

A torque wrench is no different to any other product.  There are always cheap brands available and then there are the ones that cost a lot more.  Cheap torque wrenches generally have no spare parts available.  If something goes wrong, the wrench becomes a throw away item, whereas manufacturers of more expensive torque wrenches generally have a vast amount of spare parts available to help keep your torque wrench operating like new, without the need for replacement.

I am a firm believer that "you get what you pay for".  Expensive torque wrenches have far more superior operating mechanisms, ratchet assemblies and are made from top quality materials.  As well as this, extensive research and development and testing will ensure a product that will meet all expectations.

A torque wrench is used for critical torque applications - "rough enough is good enough" just doesn't cut it. 

If you are looking for a good quality torque wrench that will give you years of trouble free use, as well as the confidence in knowing that the correct torque of fasteners is being achieved time after time, look no further than the Norbar product range.  Norbar have torque wrenches that will cover every application you require. 

My advice simply is to  take the guess work out of it and invest in confidence.  Upgrade before it is too late.

Torque to Tom for a great price on all Norbar products.
