Mechpro Adjustable Torque Wrench Set 1/2" 42-210Nm - MPW107 $29 + $9.90 Delivery ($0 C&C) @ Repco

210

I'm looking for a socket set (please help me, as I have never had one - only have a $10 adjustable spanner at home).
Found this on sale in Repco. Don't think that I would need something this big (long) yet, but found it posted on OZB 2 years ago at $35. Might be a good deal now as it's only $29.

Again, please help me in finding an OZB DIY socket set, for fixing Kmart/Repco bikes, changing car oil, battery, or garden furniture,…
Thanks.

    Not an expert but I think torque for bike adjustments is much lower than 42nm, this wrench is more for cars.

      Had no idea, but this comment is right. Need something under 10 for bikes, around 5nm territory.

      Yep, bikes are more in the 3-5 Nm range. Never over 10 Nm.

      Any good deal for bike torque wrench?

        Cheapest one is $32.65 on Amazon. Drive or click vanadium. Used a cashback deal but could not find better for 10nm adjustable. Link flags as affiliate…

      Bikes (from mountain bike experience) can go up to around 50Nm for less common things like casette lock ring, bearing cups etc.

      But yes just about all the common maintainence points is generally around 3-10Nm range.

    Is this good for changing brake pads?

    I grabbed a Craftright branded one from Bunnings last week for $35 which goes down to 30Nm, if you need more room in the lower end of the scale

      I have that 1/2 " craftright one from Bunnings too.
      Its been great for me, used a couple times as a breaker bar otherwise normally only for tightening wheels
      Had used it to tighten my car's rotor bolt (84 NM) along with use of some thread locker.

      Definitely recommend using that craft right one
      But one thing to keep in mind that craftright one doesn't come with an adaptor that converts the 1/2 inch drive (female) to 3/8 inch drive (male).

      This repco one i think that adaptor included.

      Although you can buy that adapter separately
      but upto you.

      And 1/2 " to 3/8 " adapter is really useful and kindaa necessary for most applications.

      Any chance you can post a link to that? I can't find it on the Bunnings site?

        This one here for $34.95

        Think I got the Powerpass 5% discount as well, which I wasn't expecting

      Yeah, I have both the repco and craftright one and the craftright one has a better build quality - not to mention a better torque range too.

    Socket set at Kmart isn't bad for light tasks. $10 40 piece sets are at most places. Ratchets in those are weak, so try to avoid using it to break/open bolts.
