NL Snap On also makes sockets with plastic inserts not to mar the bolts.

Started looking for one which won't rape my wallet and found this.

Park Tool Co. » TW-5 : Ratcheting

Ordered one on Fleabay for $85 shipped. I'll post up my thoughts on it when it arrives.

Years ago I bought a Proto #6177A dial type. It goes 0-250 in/lbs. I use it mainly for torquing things on motorcycle engines, but it would be perfect for our engines too. I like it because it has no lower torque limit, the lowest graduation is 5 in/lbs.

Just came in. Pretty solid and looks to be a quality piece. Looks small in my big gorilla hands, but it looks like it will get the job done. Haven't tried it out yet, but I'm pretty happy so far.

Nice thread! I've got a couple snap on torque wrenches (1/2, 3/8 & 1/4) that I've had since my wrenching days. Great wrenches. Make sure you set the wrench back to zero when you put it back in your box ��
