Krisbrumm, I'm not getting into a lame discussion about the manufacture of iron castings (or steel for that matter), HOWEVER correction: "normalising" is a form of heat treatment. If you won't take my word for it, definition below;

If you really don't know what your talking about, suggest you save the absurdly inaccurate lectures for a 5 year old who doesn't know any better.

Happy New year!

my personal recommendation would be the halfords wrenches. theyre pretty robust and imo give the best value for money with accuracy. The springs inside, im SURE, will stay accurate enough for what us mere mortals use it for on our bikes. Just make sure once it has been used you back it all the way off, this means the spring is only under tension when its in use and not losing its calibration when not in use.
I bought mine after reading a review in PB or similar magazine, they tested them to 125% of their max and the halfords one lost very little accuracy (at full scale) if any. I wouldnt bother with an expensive one for light use.
I think they retail at about 50 quid but tbh i think its the best 50 quid ive ever spent on a tool (ok no jokes please
Torqueing stuff up is essential, go buy one !!

I like to use this Proto wrench for all applications. I'm having a bit of a rough time finding a 6mm socket though.

I used to come from the school of " I can tell when it's tight enough", this usually meant I'd overtightened it - sheared it or at least got to that point where you could just feel it going and think "oh s h i t". 10nm is hardly anything - It's surprising how little force is actually required.

I agree with one wheel - Halfords do a very good wrench in nm & imperial. The one I use most (see pic) is 10 - 60nm / cost about £60.00.

Hi James.

Depends on your budget. I have three of the Warren and Brown wrenches ranging from 1/4” up to 1/2”.

If budget is a concern, id start with something like this.
