One thing to remember is that a torque wrench is only as good as its last calibration.
What plan do you have to keep yours in calibration?
I am very lucky in that I have access to calibrated torque wrenches, but for the typical owner...how can you put blind faith in something that can go out of adjustment if dropped, bumped, (ab)used to loosen fittings, etc.?
Generally, the 'click type' require the most maintenance (calibration), dial indicating the second, and beam the last. Just because it's a Sears clicker doesn't mean it'll be accurate today or ten years from now, unless it is calibrated.
Not to pee on anyone's leg or anything...just a fact.
