    Favorite torque wrenches

    Working on installing my new Centurion rail and realized I didnít have an inch pound torque wrench.

    Whatís everyone using for torque wrenches? I have a friend that has the Wheeler Fat Wrench and it seems nice for low-torque applications.

    Looking for a few recommendations before I spend money on another tool.

    Thanks!

    I have a Weaver torque wrench. Same idea/setup as the Wheeler. Works well for rails and scope rings/mounts using in/lb settings.

    2nd on CDI. But I don't know where you can find them outside of a Snap-on truck.
    Not high speed, low drag. More like ten under, blinker on.

    For low torque work I have a Fat Wrench and a Vortex torque wrench. I like the Vortex better.

    I have both the Vortex and the Wheeler digital FAT wrench. I like the Vortex better. I got the Wheeler because it has a range higher than 50 inch lbs. which is what a needed for bedding block screws on a Ruger American rifle. Vortex is 10-50 inch lbs.

    I have access to a Snap On truck, that isn't an issue. I think you can buy CDI stuff online too, I haven't looked too much.

    I picked up a Wheeler Fat Wrench yesterday at a local Cabelas. It works, tested it against my friends Fat Wrench and it seemed consistent. Not a "high quality" torque wrench but it did the job I needed it to do. I do want to pick up a higher quality tool at some point soon.

    A tool question in this forum? Seriously?
    The simple fact of the matter is this, America has never not been great.
