Warren Brown are the go. I have a 1/2 Repco one that's about 16-17 years old. I need a 3/8 one.

I have 2 but need a 3rd.

A 1/2" Warren Brown for the big stuff, a 1/4" Teng Tools for the small stuff (5-25Nm) but I really need an "in between".

How old is the Teng. They have a new supplier and are no longer much good as they lose calibration. I priced one up and the Teng retailer said they prefer not to supply Teng TWs anymore as even new they need calibrating. They offered me an alternative but I don't remember the brand. Shame because I find Teng gear pretty good.

Both of mine are old (but well loved and looked after) The WB I've had for over 20 years and the Teng one I'm not 100% sure but well over a decade.

I would love one that beeps. Then I could say, “make the noise”.

I'd love one of those but I can't justify the price for how often I'd use it.

Happy to take a donation though :)

2000 Vs Ute
Have a 1/2 Norbar 20-100nm that has the head so you can do both left and right threads (bought because of often doing a left thread on a bike)
Got a kinchrome that does into the 200nm's which rarely if ever gets used.

Favourites would be the Wiha torque tools though. Adjustable 0.8-5nm or the 2-7nm.

I believe it's only in the last couple of years Teng changed suppliers for their TWs. Because three or four years ago Nuts and Bolts were still supplying Teng TWs.
