This review was written by Frank, a good customer of ours who recent purchased the Park Tool TW-6.2 3/8-inch Ratcheting Click-Type Torque Wrench. He wrote up a review for all of us to read up on so let’s check it out.
The Park Tool TW-6.2 3/8-inch Ratcheting Click-Type Torque Wrench measures torque in the 10 to 60 Nm range in .25 Nm increments. It ratchets clockwise or counter-clockwise at the flip of a switch and measures torque in either direction. Since it's a Park Tool product, I expected that it would be a high-quality device that was built to last a long, long time. My expectations were fully met and I am absolutely delighted with the wrench.
This is a solidly constructed tool. Inset into the wrench's handle is an indicator covered by a clear plastic window that shows the torque value you've set in Nm. There's a small laminated chart on the shaft for converting Nm to inch-pounds. You set the torque value by twisting a knob on the end of the handle.
The wrench is designed for the attachment of 3/8-inch drive sockets and bits, which eject from the head when you press a button located on the back of the head. Also, as noted above, it has a switch that controls the direction of ratcheting. When you reach the desired torque, the wrench ceases ratcheting and emits a loud and clear "click" sound. After that, additional force applied in the same direction will simply cause the wrench to click again.
The handle is just over 14 inches long, making it easy to apply enough force to achieve high levels of torque. I used it to re-install my bottom bracket, which required over 55 Nm, and the Park Tool TW-6.2 made the procedure easy. The wrench comes in a sturdy case that snaps closed securely for storage. The inside of the case is molded to fit the contours of the tool.
The item shipped promptly and arrived quickly. Customer service from Worldwide Cyclery was courteous and efficient with a nice sense of humor. I highly recommend the Park Tool TW-6.2 and Worldwide Cyclery!
