This is a good quality torque wrench considering the low cost that I paid for it. It will only see occasional use in my home garage and not be subjected to the daily rigors like when I was a professional mechanic so it should last as long as I need it. I plan on keeping mine in the clear plastic **** shell it came in as a storage case since there are no storage cases specifically designed for beam style torque wrenches offered at my local Sears. I like the wrench enough that I am considering purchasing the 1/2" version.

Seems to be a good USA made tool. Have used it a few times and am very satisfied with it and the price. Good value substitute for the expensive click type wrenches for the do it your selfer.

Seems to work but I would be interested to see how it compares to a dial type torque wrench at lower torques because right out of the packaging, the beam wasn't at zero. Other than that, simple design and if accurate at all the whole torque range it seems useful to me.
This is the third torque wrench I've bought including a Sears non-beam model that froze up after many years of unuse. The beam model will obviously not do this. The disadvantage is that it's often hard to read the dial while you are applying torque. It worked well at 30-40 N-m on an FSA bicycle bottom bracket. Another comment says the N-m and ft-lb scales do no match but on the real thing 47.5 N-m and 35 ft-lbs align. I think the previous reviewer was looking at the picture which was taken at an angle.
A good basic product. Beam torque wrenches were used for many years before the clicker ones became available. They still work very well for basic jobs. I don't torque much so this and the the 1/2 version will suite me just fine.

Unless there is some old stock laying around, you will not get the wrench pictured online. This wrench is now made in China, not the USA. The china made wrench has a rough metal finish, looks sand blasted. A bigger disappointment is the scale on the china made wrench, it is narrower so it takes less movement to reach the 75lb limits. This makes the wrench less accurate and more difficult to use. Another issue is that the wrench is the manual states the wrench is only accurate from 20 to 100% of scale. You should not try to torque anything lower than 15ft-lbs with this wrench. Not what I expected from craftsman which further degrades my once good opinion of the craftsman brand.
