Re: Torque wrench

As this is a tool you will rarely use and can be damaged if it gets wet, I would suggest just renting or borrowing one from a yard for the day. Even hiring someone with one to come in and do the torquing, might be a better way. I have a whole tool box filled with specialized tools which need cleaning and lubing, much more often that I use any of them.
