torque wrench?

I had one of those old style torque wrenches which i bought from Canadian tire a couple years ago (with the dial and needle), and it just broke. need to get a new one .

Where can i get a decent torque wrench for a low price?

I use a Mastercraft Maximum I picked up a few years ago from CT, pretty reasonable if on sale. The standard model at Princess Auto is okay too.

That's not a mastercraft maximum. I recently bought my maximum torque wrench for much less than that.. MSRP regular price is close to $200

That's the one I bought a few years back on sale for around $75. I haven't seen it that low in a while now, though.

Im pretty sure that all canadian tire tools have a life time guarantee (no receipt requied) as long as they have the mastercraft stamp on them, just get a new for free

Thats what I do when my wratchets/wrenches break

Yes, Mastercraft should have a no fuss exchange policy.

I've been using the powerfist torque wrench for years, both 3/8" and 1/2". I have them calibrated once a year and its always within spec.

I would honestly wait for the mastercraft maximum TW to go on sale for an extra 30$... I've heard that the regular one is a piece of shit... and as for the breaker bar.. save your forearms and grab a 17mm lug wrench for a few extra dollars.

Way easier to swap wheels this way.

this..
if it doesnt work, try another store.
check the packaging at the store and see if it's lifetime warranty

i thought canadian tire mastercraft torque wrenches are lifetime warranty.

Breaker bar and torque wrench is the best tire changing combo. Makes things so easy.

I use a jet equipment 1/2 drive torque wrench. Paid around $100 but the quality is excellent. The tricky thing is that the internals of the wrench are warrantied for a year but the rest of the wrench is lifetime. CT brand might be similar. I bought a cheap chinese one that broke the first time I used it. Buy quality and buy once I say.
