Put simply, if you make a living by means of your tools (mechanic, handyman, etc.), don't buy the cheap stuff. Stay away from Harbor Freight. Yes, it may last a lifetime, or it may break tomorrow. It's not worth the risk.
However, for the rest of us who tool around on the weekends, this could be perfect for you. I picked up this wrench at Harbor Freight for $9.99 using a coupon. And it's still available on their website for $19.99. It's advertised as being accurate within 4%. Which is good enough for my daily driver. I use this tool primarily for lug nuts, and I have no complaints.
TIP: Remember to return the wrench to the 0 pounds setting when you are finished torqueing. This will maintain the life of the spring.
As a casual mechanic, I thought I'd use this torque wrench only a few times a year, so didn't want to overspend on an expensive brand only to have it sit in the tool chest 360 days a year. I purchased this wrench in July, used it a couple times in August. Here in early September, I needed to use it again. It,s supposed to click when the desired torque (in this case a tiny 10 nM) is reached. It malfunctioned,didn't click and caused me to break an engine bolt that now complicates my motorcycle maintenance project to a considerable degree. The wrench is totally defective: to test it, I put the wrench end in a vice and pushed the handle. The handle will not budge, making this in effect a long handled wrench. No wonder the engine bolt broke! I won't risk a replacement torque wrench purchase (my purchase was less than 60 days ago so NO RETURN is possible) of this brand.
This seems well made and has worked for me. It has both scales, nm and ft.lbs. I needed something that would get down to 7-10 ft. lbs and this does it. I would buy this again.
