Jees Pete...are you not aware of the temperatures involved in re-entry...if your torque settings are 0.0001% out then your angle through the atmosphere will be misaligned & you'll burn up..duh

Speaking of re entry this post has gone to outer space and back! So I am going to buy a Snap On Techwrench. Seems to be the best buy all the way around, and to get a couple of other quality ones that will do what the Techwrench will is almost as costly.
I am looking at used right now one on EBay and one on Craigslist, save a few hundred as long as it wasn't dropped....otherwise looks like a new one is about $430 Canadian. OUCH but will have it for as long as I will be turning wrenches.

Hey Boss. If I want to beat on my wheel I'll do it. It's mine isn't it? So back off and quit yelling Mr Hydrolic press man. Every time someone says something you don't like or agree with you come off yelling at em. Cool down. If I end up cracking my wheel from hitting a rim ding then thats my problem. I'll get a new one. I never said I got the best ways of doing things but I make a lot of stuff work to my likings. And I do have access to a press. Maybe I will try it sometime.
While were on the press subject, Have you ever crushed something real big? Like a Ford F-150 cab? I have. Did it with a Komatsu PC220. Smashed it down good to about 1 foot tall

In addition to my existing collection, that includes one like this:

I got one of these to go with my 650, primarily for the triple clamps,

It is very good.

More options here:

Remember that when you have finished with your torque wrench, remove all the tension from it, typically resetting it to zero so that the spring is less likely to relax and it'll maintain its calibration longer. And store it properly.

I agree with BOSS re lubing spokes, I dismantle all my wheels when new and lube up the nipples with antiseize, both on the threads and under heads where they seat into the rim. And like Pollo I have also had good success bashing out dinged rims with a anvil and big ball pein hammer. Loosen all the spokes nearby first, and then re-true. I can loosen them because I've lubed them up already. I also have a 20 tonne press, but don't have pretty anodized rims.
