Smaller settings are essential for proper maintenance (spark plugs, smaller bolts, etc.) These are fairly easy to read. Clicker works fine at light settings.

I bought this at a great discount. I was a little worried about it as I bought a 1/2 drive torque wrench from sears that was not very good. This seems to be great. It has a nice feel, the head is not loose like on the 1/2 drive, and is accurate. I tested it against my friends snap on that was just calibrated and they were the same.

I love this great torque wrench. It is very easy to dial the torque specifications. The wrench is large enough for those tough jobs that require a lot of leverage.

I bought this to fill in my set of Craftsman torque wrenches. I was unimpressed by the supplied case for a "precision tool" and the fact that is was (to later find out) manufactured in China was VERY disappointing.No "left hand" measurement operation is another ding on the use of the tool. I choose my quality tools from Snap-On, Mac, Matco and Craftsman and this one concerns me. I can buy Chineesium when accuracy and quality aren't so much an issue, but wouldn't knowingly on a tool of this type....Disappointed would be my overall opinion.
Thought I was getting a great deal at 50% off. The wrench looks and feels well built. However, on the first attempt to set the torque to 20 ft lbs (the lowest setting is 10 ft lbs), noticed the grip was loose and moved freely up and down. The cap at the bottom of the grip even popped off. Obviously I didn't check the wrench until I got home or I would have saved a trip back to the store. Taking a chance that it was a rare dud, I returned it for another. Checked it out at the store, and it seemed to work fine while setting the torque. I used it recently and it seems to work fine. Time will tell. Unfortunately, this wrench doesn't come with the Craftsman lifetime warranty like many of their non-specialty tools. You even have to pay for re-calibration after a year.

I bought this wrench at my local Sears while it was on sale for $40. It works just fine, and if I had the need to replace it at the same price, I would do so. I was a little wary after reading some of the reviews, especially on poor calibration. Though I haven't checked the calibration directly, I've checked this wrench against a couple others (both more expensive and less expensive) and they all read within a couple ftlbs of each other. Keep in mind that clicker torque wrenches aren't accurate on the low end of the range. Anything less than 15ftlb's (20% of maximum) is not going to be accurate on this wrench. At those low torques I go by feel, but if I wanted to use a torque wrench, I'd drop to an inch pound wrench. That's a general rule for torque wrenches (no less than 20% of max), and the manual for this one mentions it. On to my few gripes: 1) The lock ring and twist grip are plastic and feel flimsy. The twist grip has a funky groove pattern on it that doesn't seem to offer a whole lot of functionality. I'd prefer a simple, all-metal, knurled handle for good grip and no need to worry about exposure to solvents. 2)The manual states that the wrench should not be used for loosening fasteners, so why they made this wrench with a bi-directional ratchet head is beyond me. 3)The plastic tray that the wrench comes in is sturdy and functional, but the clear plastic cover for it is awful. It's flimsy and it doesn't snap on to the tray... there are six screws that hold it in place. Not a big deal sitting in my tool chest, but an annoyance if I want to bring the wrench anywhere. Bottom line: For $40 this is a decent wrench. Be sure you understand the limitations--this wrench will not work for every fastener.. I'd happily buy another one for $40, maybe even a little more than that. If I had to pay full retail, however, I'd probably save my pennies and get a better wrench with some additional features... though that would cost about 3 times as much as this tool.

I purchased this torque wrench on a whim on sale. Out of the four 3/8" Craftsman wrenches it was the best balance of cost quality and torque range that Craftsman offers in the 3/8" size. The 10 to 75 ft-lbs range was the most useable for me and l wanted micro-click type wrench not an I-beam style or a digital. For the 75 to 250 ft-lbs range I bought the 1/2" Craftsman digital torque wrench and I would recommend that wrench too for big jobs. In summary, this 3/8" torque wrench is great for jobs requiring torques up to 75 ft lbs if you only have 3/8" sockets and like the small size and weight. If you need to torque things to greater than 75ft lbs and want only one torque wrench buy one of Craftsman's 1/2" torque wrench but they are much larger, longer, and heavier than a 3/8".
