|quick comment , i broke a critical bolt once with clicker because I read vernier scale wrong , setting it . very easy to misread a vernier scale in the moment , or off one whole turn . I hate them . Make a mistake, may cost you an engine block . |
You hear the click but you don’t really know if that is accurate on a given day. Or how close you are to it clicking as you approach it . Maybe good in a factory.--
If beam / pointer is on zero it has to be very near correct , bending of steel is totally repeatable . And you can tell / get a feel as it approaches the desired setting , especially if doing in 3 steps. Reset the clicker 3 times?
Feel matters a lot as you approach full torque if something not right?
Last , process of torquing bolts itself will have errors way more than 2-3 % , tapped thread variations , lube , bolt hardness , rolled or cut threads , washers, bolt finish or plating etc . Why for really precision setting like race rod bolts they measure stretch .
To each his own .
Craftsman tools to me every bit as good as snap on , and Kobalt seems ok especially for the $, but it gets down to “like buying bmw for the kidney grill and free monogrammed driving gloves .”
And all that is ok if it makes you happy !
