Is there a one-size-fits-all torque wrench that can be used for most of the maintenance works on the SLK? Since I want to buy one, I would like to know what to get but I'm not too keen on spending lots of $$$$ to buy several. I guess the click type is the best but what about the torque range and the size.

Thank you all for the input. :hail:

What Galo said. I've got a "decent" Craftsman (Sears) in in/lbs and a nice SnapOn in ft/lbs. Despite negative reviews on the Craftsman, mine works fine, but I treat it properly. It's also not covered by the lifetime warranty like every other Craftsman tool I own.....


EDITED : Both are "click type".

You're better off having 2 - a 1/2 inch drive for the meaty stuff where the accuracy is not tooooo important and a baby one ( 3/8th or even 1/4" drive ) for more delicate fasteners.

I use one for all It only has one setting FT lol :)



(joking of course )
Let's see, convert in/lb to ft/lb...ooops, I broke the bolt :biglaugh: (got the joke ;))

Yah, on in/lb connectors, I generally use "feel" to make sure the fastener is good and snug :tu:
