Right.  Found that the out the hard way when I broke the plastic adjustment
collar on a Sears Torque Wrench, which listed at $69.95.

I bought the replacement wrench from Imparts, for $89.95 from Imparts,
and it came in a nice plastic case, and has more rugged construction than
the Craftsman. You could get it for less if you ask for Victor or Jim,
and mention the quattro list.
