What do I need to know about buying a torque wrench

Yes that one should do as I know Craftsman Tools come with lifetime warranty and if it breaks well you can always take it back and get a new one. Smile Just remember that when you add extensions bars you have to take in consideration the length. I don't remember what the math is, but I do believe it comes with the chart. I would say that is a very nice torque wrench. It is always a pleasure to build your ride from frame up too. Great luck to you.

You may find this helpful, or at least consider that when you use an extension you increase leverage which means you now need less force to deliver your intended torque. http://www.engineersedge.com/manufacturing_spec/torque_wrench_1.htm
