Crapsman torque wrenches are covered for the ratcheting mechanism but 
not the torque assembly.  If the pawl breaks or gets stripped, they 
will replace the wrench.  They used to have repair kits that sold for 
a penny.  It was worth it for the springs and grease alone.  I spent 
a quarter and cleaned out the local store years ago.  Replaced one at 
zero-dark-thirty once - worth the penny...

The ultimate wrenches are the ones that used to make them for Snap-On 
but I forget their name.  Don't use springs so you can leave it at 
whatever setting you want without fatiguing the tool.

Just found them on the net: http://www.torqwrench.com
