Studding, looking for a big enough torque wrench.

Hey, trying to stud my 6.0l. I am looking for a reasonably priced torque wrench that will go to at least 250ft/lbs, any suggestions?

Figure around $250 for a good one. I found a used snap-on for $200; craigslist. What do you consider reasonable? I think I got a steal.

Yeah 200 for the snap on sounds like a steal. I had thought about the oriellys rental, but they want it back within 48 hrs tangos own it. and i may just want to take my time. Also, i like to own the tool.

Re: Studding, looking for a big enough torque wrench.

Only problem with the O'Rileys torque wrench I would be leery of is the calibration of it. Maybe they have a programs where they calibrate them often? I would be worried that some guy before you used it to loosen bolts or over torque something so it is not actually toqueing to the proper torque.
