just a quick question. What type of torque wrench serves you best while working on your fleet? do you normally go with a 3/8 rachet with a smaller ft/lb range or one with a wider in/lb and do the conversion in your head? Keep in mind i will probably only be able to purchase one (1) torque wrench of the craftsman variety. none of that high end tool bias for me. oh boy internet tool shopping!!

i have a craftsman 3/8" in my box. if it is below what my wrench will go to, i use a 1/4" drive rachet and just go by feel. if it is over what mine goes to (never encountered that on a bike yet...but have had it on my datsun pick up) i go get the air gun and give it a squirt.

Thanks for that advice K fever, i was not really thinking about that, im sure your right.
Ahh yes, the old zap gun. Squirt is a technical term, im sure. thats funny
air compressor is a necessity to but a little further on down the line.

if you get an american wrench, just remember that there are 25.4mm in an 1", 304.8 in a foot, and there is .039370078" in 1mm...you should be good from there
