Bought this two years ago, and used it a few times. Today, the 3/8 drive socket snapped off like a twig at about 100 ft/lb.

    Comments about AutoCraft 3/8" Drive 100 ft.-lb. Torque Wrench:

    The directions are so bad that it doesn't explain how to set it at 10, the minimum.

    the torque guage slides around and around, up and down, so there's not a single way I can think of to actually use it for accuracy. UNLESS someone takes the time to teach me, I'm better off going by hand with instinct with a regular wrench.

    I went into the store, asked, and they said "if you dont like it, maybe you should get a better one"

    I simply want good directions, and concerns answered. Please!?!?!?

        first time using the ratcheting mechanism broke.Returned and exchanged product.Ratchet mechanism still works intermittantly.Was torqueing ball joints and stripped them out because wrench never clicked.Tested the wrench at various settings and discovered that it would not click at all with torque settings over 40 ft lbs..NOt worth the space it'll take up in your tool box.

          Do not buy this wrench, you are better off torqueing by hand. My 3rd time using this wrench I used it to tighten transmission pan bolts. I snap one bolt off and possibly damaged several more or worst, damaged the trans housing. I brought wrench to a fellow mechanic and when compared to his, this wrench was over tourqing and inaccurate. I sent a email to manufacturer and have yet to get a reply. Lesson learned, if you are going to invest in a tourque wrench by a high quality wrench from a mnaufacturer that stands behind there product.

          This product does as it says it does and I am satisfied with the functions of the wrench. However thats where the good feedback ends...to think that this was made in Germany and they used a cheap plastic handle (that was cracked when I opened the package) is disappointing in itself but now I have to drive back and request my money back so I can go look for another one not so poorly made. Do not buy this product is my recommendation.

            • Q:

              I have one that is out of calibration on the high end, above 50-75 in/lbs. Is there a procedure for calibration for it?

                A:

                Hi there Bob! Happy to help! If the Torque wrench is out of calibration we suggest getting in touch with your local store to possibly replace it under warranty. Another option can be to take your Torque wrench to a machine shop they can possibly re calibrate it. One thing to keep in mind is when not in use to set the wrench to 0 so the springs are at rest.

            • Q:

              How does this torque wrench even work?

              1. The plastic handle piece that displays the torque setting, slides all the way up the handle. Second, it spins around so, based solely on the scale, I could make it read 0 or 5 simply by spinning the black plastic gauge piece.

              2. The directions are vague. It doesn't explain how to set it at 10ft lbs, it barely explains how to bring it to 13 for spark plugs.

              3. Why is this so cheap? I bought it for $50 and I could have had a real one, thats simple to use an easy to understand, for $75.

              4. Teach me how to set it at 10, because if I turn the handle i can see the hexagon bolt. This tool seems extremely poorly designed. I'm talking, 4 hours of R&D, tops. What the heck guys?

                A:

                I'm happy to help, Professional Mechanic! The top collar or the minor scale should not freely turn around the tool when adjusting torque. This part should be able to move up and down with the handle as this mechanism that allows setting the torque.

                Typically, there will not be specific instructions for specific torque settings like 10 or 13 ft-lbs, but how to adjust it to your prefered setting.

                Advance Auto Parts is able to obtain these torque wrenches at a great price as Autocraft is our brand. I have sent instructions to your e-mail address that may be more helpful in setting your Autocraft 3/8" Drive 100 ft.-lb. Torque Wrench (Part No. AC67). If you are dissatisfied with the product or find it to be defective in any way, please return the tool to your local Advance Auto Parts along with your receipt for an exchange or refund.
