I got a Sears Craftsman Club flier in the mail yesterday saying that they're having a tool sale this coming week, and MicroTork click-type torque wrenches are featured. There was also a separate postcard for 10% off anything this coming November 1-3, so it looks like a pretty good time to treat yourself to a torque wrench.
(I have _no_ connection to Sears beyond owing them a couple hundred bucks for a spiffy new carpet cleaner...)
P.*. I saw the benefits of properly torquing the lug nuts by how an already-warped set of rotors on a neighbor'* Buick actually got noticeably better afterwards. Not perfect, but a _lot_ better than what I'd started with, since they didn't have the budget to replace them at the time.
