I have the 1/2" drive wrench and the 1/4". The calibration was checked for both and came very close to indicated.

I ordered one online using that coupon and received it last Tuesday. I must have gotten a bad one because even at the lowest setting (5 lb), it does not click. I have the 1/2" drive version of this, also from HF, and it has always worked just fine. I tested the new one on bolts that I had previous used the 1/2" version on. Those bolts were torqued at 23 lb so one would think that using the new wrench at 5lb would get ya click.

I might keep it and just use it as a normal socket wrench with a nice long handle. The local HF store is a PITA to get to and deal with once you get there.

how do you check the calibration?
I took mine to work, as several others had done.

Pretty accurate until you get to the high end of range, but I didn't need it that high anyway.

For the accuracy and price, it works fine for me.
