    Flare torque wrench



    Hi all, During the last 18 months I have had to change my Rothenberger torque wrench twice. It loses its calibration and goes 'soft', clicking too early. Any recommended brands? Willing to pay for quality.

    Hi Gozoboy.
    I don't know whether its relevant?
    Only whenever I have finished using my torque wrench. I always release the spring tension by winding it back off to 0.
    Is that something you might do?

    Hi Grizzly, no I never released the spring tension. Will try that. What brand do you use, if I may ask?

    My torque wrenches are issued from a central stores whenever necessary so are various makes.
    Rothenburger are a good make.
    So in fairness leaving the spring tensioned may well be the cause of your problem.
    Good luck and I salute your honesty for admitting not knowing about releasing the spring pressure after use!

    I just realised does the Rothenburger have the facility to release the tension?
    Or is it pre-set?
    If its pre-set then it may not be something you are doing wrong?

    To release the spring I have to wind it out.
