Thanks for the heads up. I just tested it, and it seems to work fine. Just make sure to put RENN in the discount code box and press update cart. The $99 price will then appear.

In regards to re-calibration - all torque wrenches need to be re-calibrated at some point in time. The only exception to this is the traditional Beam Style Wrenches - since you can see if the pointer is still at zero (and if it is not, you can just bend it back into position). The biggest issue with most torque wrenches (the "click" style) is that if you forget to turn the torque wrench down to its lowest setting after use, the spring will deform -and the wrench loses accuracy. This is the single biggest reason why torque wrenches become out of calibration. Our digital wrench is actually based on the traditional beam technology - so there is no need to turn the wrench down after use - and it holds its calibration very well.

However, it will at some point still need to be re-calibrated. How often is a tricky thing - since it depends on your needs / uses. Obviously, a person who is using their wrench to assemble aircraft engines will want it re-calibrated more often than someone who is using it to tighten lug-nuts on their car every few months. In general, we would recommend having it re-calibrated after 3K uses.

We recalibrate them in Chicago for $30 (which includes shipping back to you within the lower 48 states).

Has anyone else pulled this thing out of the box only to find it won't work? I've used it once and dug it out to give it to my brother, changed the batteries out and it doesn't turn on.

Wow, that's unusual. I'm a big proponent of electronics and integrated circuits in torque wrenches, hammers, washing machines, dryers, toasters and air conditioners. What could go wrong??

Hi Sean - I just used mine yesterday replacing the half-shafts on my Volvo and it worked fine. But, I probably only use it ever 3-4 months though.

Maybe the new batteries are in backwards.
