watch out for all torque wrenches!

every year the TR's at our garage went back to snap on to be recalibrated. every year they were way out.

the mechanics (my father) KNEW the figures were wrong & so it proved.

now i'm out of the car trade i still use mine & my belated fathers.

i'm convinced they are miles out.

every time the snap on truck goes by i want to stop him.
