Need to know a few things about torque wrenches:

1) What are the types? I know of the click-type wrenches but what about the other types?

2) Is it true that craftsman wrenches lose calibration after like 3 bolts?

3) Are snap-on wrenches really worth the extra 300 dollars? Craftsman Click-type = 80 bucks. Snap-on Click Type = $365

4) Who does recalibration and what does it cost?

Snap-On's are almost always better then Craftsman, and they have the same life time return guarantee :)

Th Craftsmen wrench will last just fine. Snap-On, while great tools, are horrendously overpriced and generally not neccessary in an ordinary shop. We have several torque wrenches and the Craftsmen are the ones i prefer to use. If you get the click-type one (i recommend it) just remember to dial it back down to 0 when you're done using it. leaving it in a set position will lower the calibration life. one last note: the dial-type sucks :(
