check out my new toy. this 3/8 digital torque wrench does Nm,kgcm,ft-lb, and in-lb. it has yellow led when getting close to set torque then green led with a loud beep when right on target, and red led when over torque. it also has a flex head. it's $350 on sale this month( maybe longer) from MAC Tools

i was looking at a digital one locally

do you have to hold it steady in place to get a correct read out?
When youre getting close to the torque setting you have it at, a yellow led lights up then you slowly turn it more till the green led lights up and then there will be a loud tone telling you to stop. Its programmable you dont have to watch the display to see what the torque is. you set it at for example 75 Nm and just use it just like a normal torque wrench.

I have the cheap "click" type torque wrench. It would be nice to have something like that digital, but I'll spend my extra money on the bike.

:withstupi Thats the easy way and the best way. But if someone gave me a digital torque wrench, I would use it. But never $350 for one.

OK OK!!! I did it!!!

I bought a torque wrench.... I use to just use my room mates when I needed one... he would get one from his work that had industrial use torque wrenchs that were certified every month. But I finally broke down and got one for my up-coming fork project...
