    Motoring related items including a torque wrench and a cordless LED work light which is also useful as an awning light.

    I wouldn't like to crack 210 Nm with that torque wrench very often, I've had these cheapy jobs and the ratchet can't handle the torque so teeth break off then your knuckles hit the floor..........hard! Ask me how I know:cry:

    Thanks Dave. Not a tool I've had cause to use very often.

    Now that I can be confident with. We've had one for a couple of years, used mainly as an awning light. In fact, you may have seen at at Lincoln last year John, in the marquee.

    To be fair the most obvious use for a torque wrench is tightening wheel bolts/nuts and most are around 140-160Nm so it could be worth it. If I had a puncture however I'd call my breakdown service to change the wheel.

    I agree about calling out the AA to change a wheel if necessary :Smile:

    I bought my torque wrench a couple of years ago thinking of wheel changing but was just thinking the other day that it's been more or less stuck in the van unused since then, as has a 6 ton bottle jack I bought with similar thoughts in mind. Looks like they might be prime candidates for the next clear out :Smile:

    We found the led light very usefull, we used it instead of Amanda's headlight on her disbilityscooter at meets and shows in the evening, so her batteries on scooter lasted longer
