What is your go to inch lb. torque wrench? Digital or other? Gotta get one. I have looking at the Wheeler digital brand. These sellers are something else...selling this digital brand from $55.00 to $254.00

I use the Wheeler Fat wrench and like it. Prior to that I used a beam style torque wrench. I found it to be very inaccurate.

Me too, FAT wrench. Do NOT buy the whole lapping kit. I did. A good extra set of gunsmith quality bits are a great accessory.

Home Depot

1/4 drive Torx bit set
1/4 drive Allen bit set

Old guns still have the retarded flathead screws in places. FAT wrench comes with some flathead bits.

I said Home Depot, but I failed to mention their Husky brand. I've got a shop and a truck full of tools. In the rare occasion I need something, Husky is what I gravitate to. They've been quite good.

Damn shame what happened to Craftsman.

Can the FAT wrench be used to UNSCREW these small screws or just torque down?
