    Yes I have two, a smaller one that covered everything I was likely to need on motorbikes then the giant one I bought for the VW crank/clutch. Well I have them if son in law hasnít borrowed them lol

    Campagnolo - how old are you people lol. Shimano is now the world leader, as used by most pro teams, including Team SKY. And you think it is all crap.

    If you have the money Shimano is the best you can buy, although I suggest that Sram is up there is as well. Campag is away down the pecking order from its heyday.

    They do some very nice stuff (Shimano PRO 3-15 Nm Torque Wrench Set) but on a pension I am not sure that I can justify 3 times the price. If I was using it on a daily basis, that would be different. There is also the fact that many repairs out on the road involve a clout with a bit of deadwood, it does not seem too important to get too perfectionist at home. I,m just deciding where to pitch it? I suspect the Compaq comments where a little tongue in cheek.

    Should have said that I went for Wiggle | X-Tools Essential Torque Wrench Set | Tool Sets at £25 it works a treat. If it is still working well in 5 years???

    Packet in every delivery. Not a great fan of them but I think its a nice touch as they do not advertise that they put them in. I did get some electrolyte tabs samples instead once which was a pleasant surprise.
