Try machine mart if your near glasgow. They have a few..Halfords sell one but they're a bit pricey..I have a silverline one which does the job..cheap but it works....think I got in on eBay for around £20.. Can't fault it so far!

I have one, but still just use a big ring spanner (I've never gotten around to buying a socket that fits the axle nut for the torque wrench).  Embarassed 

Halfords are doing one for £30 at the moment though.  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

(Just a pity they aren't doing half price on this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] it's ideal for tinkering on the bike and the plug socket is the correct size also.)

cheers Dave, i'll have a wee look on the machine mart website.

that halfords one is a low range wrench wooster, i need it to go to 117Nm at least for the axle nut.

the socket set is a bit over priced at 35, you could get the same one in Aldis for 12.99  Very Happy

Aye, that's why I usually wait until they're half price. Smile

..I say 'usually' but I've only bought three.
I left one set in a car park in Stirling and one set was stolen when my car was broken into.

I didn't notice it only went to 25Nm, that is a bit pants...barely better than pinched up. Very Happy


-edit- Are Screwfix handy for you? (there's one in Bellshill, EK, Airdrie, Falkirk etc.) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] £25
