Eh. I'd rather just get the HF wrenches and save the money toward replacing them.

The craftsmans ones arent enough better than the HF ones to justify it IMO.

The Craftsman ones have a reputation for being piece of junk, breaking just outside of the (non-lifetime) warranty period.

I have a couple of Husky ones I bought at Home Depot 15 years ago. Same price as the Craftsman at the time, but much longer lived.

Perfectly happy with the HF ones for 1/4 the price. Much as I'd like to support Sears, this isn't it.

Twas a worthy effort. Torque wrenches just aren't a contiguous market in price/quality. Spend $10 for HF, or spend a $bajillion for Snap-On. Do nothing in between.
