    I purchased an almost new Proto 3/8" drive from ebay for about $45.

    Thanks for the helpful input, Mr. smartass. Are you always this friendly, or just an asshole in general???

    ps - don't take things personally around here; we've never even met so it's kinda silly to do so. :beer

    If that was an apology, thanks. Kinda hard to tell . . .

    And, it may be "silly" to take hateful comments "personally", but it's also very rude to be disrespectful to folks who are politely seeking friendly advice.

    You're excused on grounds of being a Neanderthal.

    Thanks for the input, Captain Curmudgeon.:lol3

    Who said anything "hateful"? I merely directed you back thru the thread. When you demanded that I hold your hand - I did (fuck me... :bluduh).

    Now I'm a hateful curmudgeon - fine. I tried to tell you we entertain ourselves when helping folks out with a little playfulness and to not take it personally; the information you needed was there. DON'T BE SO SENSITIVE!

    From a QD Click Type Snap-On wrench user manual:


    "Preload click-type torque wrenches prior to use or when direction is changed. To preload, set the wrench at 50% full scale and exercise the wrench at least three times in both directions on a fastener/fixture capable of safety withstanding the preload torque"

    and

    ".......apply a slow steady force until a click/impulse is heard or felt, stop pulling and allow the wrench to reset"


    ...anyone can further explain WTF are that Preload and Reset things...?

    ...do one have to go to the 50% full scale and exercise all that on every setting change....?

    if not answered...

    1) it's junk. if you felt it yield it probably did. do your best to get it out, then replace it. if you're on the trail (which you aint now since it's not feruary anymore) then leave it.

    2) ktm seems to locktite everything. and they use small fasteners... assume the lubricated torque as it's a lower value. that way you don't do #1 too often.

    I am in the Seattle area, but, where does one generally go to get a torque wrench calibrated?

    creepy gets a Sherco and now he won't talk to ya?

    OK, lemme try to be helpful; I took a peek on the web and a shop:
    http://www.robbprecisiontool.com/
    although it would be nice to have a personal recommendation though eh?

    PS - I have been happy with my CDI wrenches, and they might still be fairly cheap (i.e. not Snap-On).
