    Question Torque(less) wrench

    I have a Brownline 1/2 inch drive digital torque wrench that has always been a bit difficult to figure out, that has never seemed to work exactly as the instructions show. At least for me it hasn't Now despite a battery change it doesn't work at all. Where can I send it for repairs? With warmer weather coming, I can get into my garage again, and I find that I really need it.
    Ride 1: 2003 300-A MM, black (naturally), K&N cold air, Granitelli Racing coils, Kybe shocks, Autometer "real" oil pressure and voltmeter, 14 inch front rotors and stainless lines from TCE with 6-piston Wilwood calipers and Hawk HPS pads, cryo-treated slotted rear rotors with TCE stainless lines and Hawk HPS pads, tune by Lidio, LED headlamps. Coming Soon: LED foglights, 200 Amp Alternator.

    Ride 2: 2001 Kenny Brown "Panther 2" Crown Victoria, Black. K&N cold air intake to Allen Engine Development supercharger system with water-to-air intercooled Eaton MP-90 at 8 pounds. Extensive chassis bracing, Brembo 4-piston front calipers on 13 inch rotors with stainless lines. Trunk-relocated Optima Red-Top. 5000K Bi-Xenon HID's. And much, much more.

    Torque(less) wrench

    They are out of Chicago or the burbs. Mine worked great until it didnít at all. They warrantied it and the second one broke right away again. Itís been a paper weight for probably 4-5 years now..

    I had one, batteries were always dead when I needed it, and then the threaded insert for the battery compartment came out of the housing and I tossed it… click style torque wrenches never have these problems

    I remember I won one of those Brownlines at the raffle in Louisville in 2014 or 2015; I sold it to someone shortly after the raffle was over b/c I knew I would never use it.

    I remember the exact same thing Derek! I think the key to these is to use it at least weekly or remove the battery.

    I will say when I used it on the Marauder heads it was simply awesome.
