A wrench is an invaluable tool for general repair and maintenance. The grip and mechanical advantage it provides enables the user to apply torque to turn nuts and bolts.
Micrometer wrenches are pre-set to the required torque on a vernier scale. An internal spring loaded mechanism measures the torque. When the bolt is tightened to the desired torque it "clicks."
If you are buying a torque wrench for your car, you should buy a 1/2 inch square drive tool, as 3/8 in drive tools only work on lower torque settings (typically below manufacturer's specifications). Adapters are available to reduce the 1/2 inch square drive to 3/8 inch square to fit the more common socket size that most people have.
An automotive tool set should contain a variety of common wrench sizes to handle automotive repairs while on the road. By having a wrench set in your vehicle you are prepared for any emergency car repairs that may be needed.
Of the two types of torque wrenches, the micrometer wrench is definitely the more accurate. Typically, they are rated as being accurate to four percent of torque set. However, this accuracy can easily be lost if the wrench is not reset to zero before storage. Beam wrenches don't have this possibility of losing their accuracy, but are less accurate right out of the box. The accuracy of these beam wrenches is typically 12 percent, but can be less on higher torque settings, especially if the operator's hand is shaking from the pressure they are applying.
