Doesn't the craftsman guarantee apply to torque wrenches? I was under the
impression that it applied to every craftsman hand tool, and therefore,
your replacement should have been free...

Otherwise, cool information!

It would be interesting to compare that design to one of these.
http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/objec...8400/18308.JPG which is what a
lot of shop techs use. Note that adjusting the torque preset is done with
the small knob on the side and you don't need to worry about setting them
back to zero when you're done. It would also be interesting to do a side by
side with one of Snap-On's spring based units such as one of these.

You might say that, yes.

Too bad one of them is now random...

I was thinking the best way to compare them would be by finding a doohickey
that I could put a torque wrench on each end of and adjust until the clicks
were as simultaneous as possible.

Why don't you buy one of each, compare the two, and post your observations?

Just take it back and demand justice!
