Default 1/4" Mini Torque Wrench

For those looking for a small torque wrench for all those AN3 nuts,

This works really well.

Default Amazon

I really like my amazon CDI torque wrenches.. they have the dial, so you can tell how much drag from the nylon nut you have, then you add that to the torque spec.

The smaller CDI torque wrenches seem to work fine with AN3 torque. I have a 1/4" drive wrench and an adapter for 1/4" to 3/8" to make it more generally useful. I also have a torque screwdriver for smaller screws.

I torque everything.

I didn't want to post a link from my Amazon page because I don't know if it'll give access to my amazon account. Lol
Type in 751LDIN. It's the short stubby one for $140. Comes with a nice plastic case. They are the same people who make the snap-on torque wrenches
