    After 20 years of spannering by ‘feel’, I fancy upgrading my toolset with a torque driver. Can you help me find what I want?
    The Park ATD-1.2 looks ok, but only has a handful of torque presets.
    The Lezyne torque drive requires careful use to see torque applied.
    I would really like a mechanism that ‘clicks’ like a traditional torque wrench. I’ve found a couple but only in 1/4″ square, and I’d prefer hex.
    I’ve seen some torque screwdrivers, which I suppose could be used with a bar trough the handle…

    Continued search has found the Sealey STS104…

    But I’d prefer a mechanical tool rather than electronic.

    I bought the Lifeline essential torque wrench set after seeing it recommended on here.

    Seems well built and serves my needs for bike stuff. Not a t-handle though.

    I don’t understand what you’re after or why. Is it something to carry with you on rides? If not why don’t you want a “traditional” torque wrench?

    Not quite T-handle, but maybe the wera?

    Didt know I needed that but ots…… I want that.

    Getting the torque wrench out of its special case from its special drawer to undertake it’s one task is a pleasure up there with lighting the log burner or mixing 2 stroke for the chainsaw.

    My wrenches are 5-25 -20-100 and 80-200 so this would fill in the below 5 area nicely. Maybe Santa will be nice to me.

    Looks about right, thanks. Having a big long torque wrench seems a bit OTT for an M4 bolt, and small tool like this is more likely to be out on the bench and get used.

    @trail_rat Wera also do 1.2-3.0 nm straight torque 1/4” screwdrivers, so you would have the full range basically.

    Had to buy one annoyingly this year after getting a fancy coffee grinder of all things that needs the face plate screws tightening evenly to 3nm in steps.
