    We get Tekton torque wrenches occasionally in for calibration and they seem well built and usually pass calibration without any major aligning. :thumbsup:

    I am looking at that stubby ratchet. I added it to my wife's Amazon cart. Lets see if she gets the hint.

    The local Cal Ranch (farm and ranch store) carries Tekton tools. I have a torque wrench, ball-peen hammer, some pry bars, and punches. Good prices, and decent quality. Definitely better than harbor freight.

    I’ve actually got a decent amount of Tekton stuff. Great bang for the buck.

    Before I moved I to a new position part of my job was building and ordering tool kits for our field engineers. I have found that Tekton tools are extremely reliable and very well priced. We use their metric hex bits short and long, torx bits, and torque wrenches. We were on a hiring rampage last year and I must have purchased 30 or more $850 tool kits. I have had zero complaints from our guys on their quality and use them myself. I have a Tekton torque wrench that I use for automotive and building rifles that has had no issues at all.

    No problems with those tools so far. Good value on those. Plus they are made in Taiwan vs China. At least the ones I have.

    Solid and quality tools IMO, I have 2 torque wrench’s, a standard and metric socket set, 3 socket wrench’s!

    I buy all from Amazon, glad you posted this, reminds me to zero out the torque wrenchs!

    I also like the IRWIN tools, bought a couple sets as well from Amazon, can’t beat the prices as well as 2 day prime!

    Husky tools at Home Depot are solid. I bought their 3/8” and 1/2” torque wrenches and really happy with them.
