The larger of the two torque wrenches looks *exactly* like the Sears Craftsman one I bought for about $25. I'm curious, why did you get two torque wrenches? I'm guessing one is 3/8" and the other is 1/4". You might be able to get a converter that will allow you to both from the same wrench.

What's the blue thing next to the chart? And the chart?

The 3/8" one is for the big jobs and the 1/4" is for stem and small stuff like brake pads. Its just better to have the tools you need on hand I think.The 1/4" I use it yesterday for the stem.And it is good for SPD as well.

How do you like that socket torque wrench? I have the same one but have not used it yet. I bought it at a yard sale for $1
