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.

Noticed you got the tension meter too very nice! Wag will do ya justice too. I use mine on new bikes I work for safety purposes so I feel better that whoever riding it will be safe.!
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

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
