    We had an employee at a sister company lose a finger last year because he was WEARING GOD DAMNED LOOSE GLOVES while milling something on a lathe. So what did our company do? Got rid of all the lathes, of course! Nerf all of the sharp edges in this world for the dumbest person. That's lathe 101, don't wear crap that can suck you in. And in my case, pull your hair back out of the way so it doesn't scalp you.. because it sure as shit will. Odd lathes came up, I've been oogling at them. I miss having one for making my pens.

    THIS is what keeps me awake at night this time of year.

    On time I opened my garage door, and there was a mouse sitting on the cab of my m-fing truck, looking at me. Like....you were gonna need this now, were you?

    Peppermint in the cowl and around the bay seems to be working but still. Jeesh....

    All...what's a decent 3/8" torque wrench for light/occasional use? I'm finding prices from $39 - $169?

    I would go ahead and get a 1/2" drive. You can always throw on a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter. That way you can a bigger one when you need it.

    I'm confident I'd lose the adapter.

    I've been liking my husky from Home Depot just fine. Double checked it with a calibrated electronic torque meter and it's dead on.

    this is an import brand available through Amazon. I was pretty impressed with the quality. But then It's in my tool box 350 days a year. Still. Recovering machinist here who loves his Starret, old Lufkin, Brown and Sharpe...it feels well made.
