    Where to get torque wrench calibrated?


    Is there any shops that do it locally? I left my spring with tension on it over night and don't want to risk it being off when I do my next head swap. I'm going to test it before I send it out b/c I haven't used it that much. Just don't want to get into a job and not be able to finish b/c the calibration is off.

    Ive always sent my wrenches back to the manufacturer. Or just check to see if its actually out. My tooltruck guy has a station on his truck to test it. What brand is it?

    if it's snap on or matco, cornwell, etc... your dealer should be able to take care of that for you......

    It's nothing fancy. It's just a craftsman twist grip type

    I know I can send it to craftsman but I wondered if anyone local could service them. I'm going to test it this weekend just to see if it's really out of spec.
