Gents,
As we have alot of nuts and bolts holding together our noble steeds what is a good 1/2" square drive torque wrench that covers all the different torque settings for our bikes. I currently use a warren and brown deflection style torque wrench which does not cover the lower range's and settings that is required.
Your thoughts please gentlemen.

Some of the lower ones Al, are simply by hand, especially around the 10 mark. Torque wrenches can be a pain in the proverbial!

Yup. What he said. Also if you are going to be using them on small fasteners don't use a cro-magnon 1/2 inch drive! Get a 1/4 drive one more suitable to the task.

Regardless of brand you end up with, may be helpful to put drive end in vice and calibrate your arm and hand to the book values you're looking at applying. Sometimes you will be surprised at how little force it takes. Could give you more input if we knew your occupation.

Some of my more cost effective purchases were snap on from ebay, but I'm currently over here where there is plenty of supply. Something small in inch pounds with a dial works for me. Obviously you won't have a problem with usage, but I asked as I've had airplane engines come in for overhaul where the owner had been doing his own maintenance. Computer types tend to leave things less than snug, where as dismantling something behind a plumber or builder would often lead to broken studs. Just my experience.

And then there's "farmer tight". One of my old partners believed that combination wrenches were designed to put a box end over an open end for increased force. A mechanic, he's not.
