ok guys im also a member of a few other forums. dont worry this is the only Datsun oriented site. Smile Anyways a few of them have a tool section part. I have found this very helpful on a few of my other builds in the past. they offer views and reviews of tools owned by members on the forum. Besides that, me being a tool Dist. i have found specialty tools for people that parts houses cant get, like dealer only tools. just a thought. I will be willing to help out on this as needed.

Awesome idea casper!  What company do you distribute for, or what tool brand?

If this takes off I can see adding a subforum under Tech!!

This is a good idea Casper, I would take a pic of mine, but they're in storage at the moment.

    I like quality, but I don't like paying lots of extra money to just split hairs as well.  I prefer a click-er, ratcheting and reversible.

    IMHO stay away from el cheapo's from places like Harbor Freight. Matco snap on and mac have great torque wrenches for the Tech thats going to use it a lot. now with that being said, Armstrong is a good choice. not the chapest or the most expensive but spot on accurate and reliable... BTW what size and readings are you after? 1/2 3/8 drive ft lbs. inch lbs???
