    $50 Digital Torque Wrench

    This would work good with one of my 1/2in breaker bars. Digital torque wrench for $50?

    Sadly it's only 30-150ft lbs. You can also use it to calibrate your torque wrenches.

    Looks like it would be really useful to recalibrate an existing torque wrench. Digital torque wrenches are kind of a pain in the ass compared to a proper torque wrench, it's hard to read the numbers all the time...

    awesome idea if you don't have a torque wrench. However I would not be using this cheap device to calibrate an expensive torque wrench. Regardless I want one

    Yeah and it seems like it would be really easy to over torque with out a click.

    I'd say it beeps when hitting a point you program in.

    "Built-in Safety Features
    To prevent over-torque, the Digital Torque Adapter is equipped with built-in safety features. Its LED indicator flashes green, yellow, and red as your desired torque is approached and attained. In addition, an audio alert beeps with progressive frequency and finally turns to a steady tone when your specified torque is reached. With the Powerbuilt Digital Torque Adapter, you can get the precise torque you want without snapping a nut or bolt in the process."
