As the OP is in the UK it's worth considering the Halfords Professional range, their torque wrenches are well reviewed and not unreasonably priced. I have two.

I use these, never had a problem with them until I lent onee to a friend who broke it, but Halfords replaced it under the life time warranty.

I have been using Norbar for years with no problems, not the cheapest but very good quality. Depends on your budget.

Thank you, I already had a big Halfords professional one (60 nm +), I have gone down the Teng route. Tried to get some eBay listed snap on but they went out of my reach.

I appreciate all your input and, once these arrive, first thing I do will be to check the hub pinch bolts.

I like Norbar too, much better than my crappy Halfords one.

The 3 on top are military air crew torque wrenches from Torque Controls Inc
And probably cost 5 times what the SnapOn ones do

Go on US eBay search "SnapOn 3/8 click torque wrench" plenty from $75 -$140
