Good Deal!! 3/8 or 1/2?
Old thread, but I will chime in...

The 3/8" is the inch-lb wrench
Their 1/2" is the ft-lb wrench, both of which go on sale at the same time for 40% off.

The sale comes around about once a month/6 wks. Also, their maximum line wrench will be on sale a week after their regular one for 40% as well (but it is almost double the price). Both have a lifetime warrenty, but the maximum comes with a case and I think the handle is soft rubber.

not sure if home depot still does this, but when i worked there (~4 years ago) you could bring any tool of any brand and home depot would give you the Husky brand of the same tool. (broken or not) so you can buy a cheap tool (jobmate etc with no warrenty) and get it exchanged with a lifetime warrenty husky tool. all free.

My husband has a Craftsman torque wrench. He's a mechanic and he has been happy with it.

Not just a Soccer Mom here, I know how to drive Ford Tough

i actually broke mine from home depot, husky brand. the racheting action doesn't work, but otherwise its fine. i went in and they said i have to call husky directly and then find another place through them that will repair it.... such a pain, i think i'm just gonna ask for a new one for xmas from canadian tire. the 1/2" maximum version is $120 for anyone curious.
