    Any reasonable quality torque wrench will be accurate enough, and do the job right. If you buy a click type torque wrench remember to re-set it to ZERO when you put it away.

    And remember to orient the barrel nut wrench/socket 90 degrees to the torque wrench.

    Craftsman and Husky build good torque wrenches for the average consumer.

    What Torque Wrench Are You Using?

    I bought a Husky 1/2 one at Home Depot a few years ago. It was made in the United States.

    Reset it to its lowest setting. Not all click type torque wrenches go as low as 0.

    Not if you're using a barrel nut wrench with the correct length. The given torque includes the arm of the barrel nut and the barrel nut is to be straight.
