I have always come to expect quality tools from Craftsman. It's nice to see that they are finally making products in the USA again, as in the 255-pc Mechanics Toolset I recently purchased. But beware that this product is Made in China - it's difficult to determine, as it's not labeled as it would be if it were made in the USA. I've had enough China junk and will only spend $100 on a hand tool that's going to last, as expected of Craftsman. I promplty returned my unit with no hassles, so for that I give this two stars.
I ordered online. The tool is good quality and was delivered fairly quickly. The only complaint that I have it the wrench does not come with the three button batteries used to power it, and it does not tell you this in the description.

I never told you, I used the 3/8 torque wrench I just bought. The tool is great, strong, accurate. The scale on the handle is easy to read and the handle/scale to handle the increment pounds is easy to read. The tool itself is a nice length when tightening bolts in excess of 100 ft pounds.

I prefer click style torque wrenches but love the idea of a digital readout. Craftsman has built both into one piece. I love these. Also, I work in a shop that requires Nm and FtLb depending on the application. These torque wrenches easily switch between the two.

I've used the Snapon3/8" flex head ratcheting Tech2FR100 for years. Nice big display that uses strain gauge technology to let you know the torque as you apply it, and both vibrates and beeps as you approach the preset limit torque IN EITHER DIRECTION. I thought the Sears wrench would be similar, but this is just a $30 'clicker' wrench that uses an LCD display to show the preset rather than the micrometer found on a standard clicker torque wrench. When you add in that the LCD is tiny with microscopic fonts in the 3-6 point range and I need a magnifier to read it. And it only clicks in the clockwise direction, so you cannot check breaking torque on fasteners. The name of the game in torque is accuracy and repeatability, and I did not test those features so it might be fine for its intended purpose, but for a lot more money than a plain clicker. It also weights 4-1/4 lb, which is about twice that of Snapon 3/8" TWs, significant if you have a long line of fasteners to deal with.
I like the torque wrench. My two minor nits are: It didn't come with the required batteries (3 LR44 batteries) The "click" sound is almost impossible to detect at the lower levels.
I purchased the product and immediately put it to work on an automotive application. Set it to the 15 lbs of torque the part required. As I torqued it I became a little concerned because it was not releasing. About that time, the bolt broke through the aluminum part. There is a $95.00 part up in flames. I then pulled out my old trusty manual torque wrench and performed a comparison check. Ends up it was out of calibration by 17 lbs. So, 15 lbs was actually 32 lbs. I called Sears with the expectations that I could send it out to be calibrated. They said return is the only option. So, I will do that and test the new one. If it is not accurate, i will return for a full refund. Be nice to get my $95.00 part replaced. :)
I was a little skeptical using a took that rely s on batteries for accuracy but after using both the 3/8 and 1/2 drive wrenches a few times I really like how you know exactly what number your on.
