At those toque levels, maybe have a look for a 1/4” torque wrench and a 1/4” to 3/8” adaptor?

Check out bicycle shops. Quite a few brands to choose. Bike mechanics use ¼” torque wrenches a lot with that torque range.

You will definitely need a 1/4" for those ranges

Try Trade Tools and see if they have something better for around the same price.

I’d be buying one from a bike shop. You will get far better quality for the money.

Isn't Sydney Tools ( I think I remember ) the place @Dayvo had issues with Crap tool quality and lots of hassle getting refund and lots said yes = shxte place.
Sure was.

Tool Kit Depot are trying quite hard to make good impressions in the market. Worth a go.

For these torque wrenches, I’d go bike shop though. They do some serious kit when it comes to fixings and tools of this nature. Like really good stuff.

There’s always a Giant Bicycle shop nearby.

Sydney tools are more interested in getting your personal data than doing a straight forward sale and adhering to retail trading laws.

I’ve also had not cool experiences.
