As you may or may not be aware, we've been following the restoration of a '67 Firebird where only Harbor Freight Tools are being employed, and are documenting it in a video series. While I've been editing footage for the blog, I couldn't help but notice that the Pittsburgh Pro 1/2" Drive Click Stop Torque Wrench was used throughout the project. In fact, in the sixth installment, where the engine gets rebuilt, this tool was the star of the show-- doing about 80% of the work!
Don't let the price fool you. The reversible 1/2" torque wrench is up to the task, whether you're a weekend warrior or professional practitioner, in the home or under the hood. And as a friend pointed out to me, it's the primo tool to keep in the car as a lug wrench. Accurate to within plus-or-minus 4%, the Pittsburgh torque wrench features a click-stop design with a range of 20-150 ft. lbs. It also comes with a heavy-duty cam and pawl mechanism that delivers the necessary precision required for jobs that require specificity. It's the go-to tool for engines, suspension and a long list of projects.
So, when you're looking to start or fortify your auto and/or shop tool arsenal. just remember One Thing:
