    I don't know the model number on mine but it's a half inch drive click type and I've been really pleased with it over the years.

    I have a $30 CSK special.

    Bought it, specs are within .5 ft/lb of every other one I have (including $300 snapon one my brother owns lol). Machine shop checked it out, still holding good after 6 months.

    Although I don't like Craftsman much anymore, they still make good tools. Their warranty coverage just isn't what it used to be and I don't think they are competitively priced like they need to be. Other than that, if it's a Craftsman you want, any one will do the job nicely for you.

    I agree with you on the pricing, some things they're just not compeditive at all on.

    However, I have never had an issue with their warranty. I've broken numerous sockets/wrenches/ratchets/extensions/hand tools and exchanged them no problem.

    Harbor Freight, just know it'll only be accurate for a year or so.

    Or spend some money for a Precision Instruments Split Beam torque wrench.

    An important thing to look at when browsing for these is the internal parts. Some cheaper ones are plastic bushings mounted, wich after some years will lose preciseness (like 40 ft/lb over like my old one). The KD Tools one is, i think, one of the best bang for the buck combo i've found yet...

    one reason for premature failure of a TW is tossing it back in your box without unloading the spring tension. Always store your TW with it set to its lowest setting.

    It's like you have a Sock Monster, but it has acquired a taste for car parts instead.......
