Picked myself up one for 18eur on Sunday and it includes a 3 year warranty... surely can't be too bad for the money

Re: Aldi Torque Wrench

Have the Aldi torque wrench over 2 years now.
40-210nm
1/2 inch drive
Comes with 4 inch extension bar and 17/19/21mm sockets.
Grand bit of kit for the money.

Re: Aldi Torque Wrench

I have one for 4 years. Probably well out of whack at this stage but still going strong! Should really pick up a new one or get it calibrated. (Or just keep on keepin on..)

Or bring it back before the 3 year warranty is up, tell them it's not working and get your money back.

I bought one for €8 from the Aldi reduced section about
six years ago.

These wrenches are easy to calibrate using a
known mass or an accurate weighing scale.
A digital luggage scale is ideal.

I also picked up one of the Aldi 6W solar battery chargers
last month. Reduced from €29.99 to €8.99.
