Everybody knows Lougheed HWY, if you just pass IKEA (on your right hand side), you will see GM/Chev store, make the right turn on that intersection (just pass IKEA). and go straight..you will see the tunnel ( upper is HWY#1), through the tunnel you will see the railway, make the turn just pass railway.

I'd be careful with the torque wrenches you are buying. Unless it is being used only for wheels I would not buy a cheapo as they are extremely un-accurate, fall out of calibration very easily and can end up doing harm to your car if it is a part that needs very specific torque perameters.

Do you really trust a $20 torque wrench?


But I can't complain about Princess Auto. Most of my big tools (tranny jack, transaxle holder, pipe bender, etc) come from there.

But for a student on a budget, a $17 torque wrench beats a $100 torque wrench! Besides, he can afford to buy 3 cheapie torque wrenches for the price of 1 "okay" brand like Craftsman or Husky.

Now if they were to offer a Snap-on torque wrench for $17, that'd be a no brainer!

Enjoy your new tool! Hope all of your torques go clickity-click.

LaterZ!

I'd been that store once, and looked around. Well, price is really cheap on everything, but...I think quality is....*cough*...well maybe cheaper is the key of that store

I just picked up a torque wrench from Lordco on sale for like $27...I was in shock when I saw the price, it appears to be a pretty quality piece too. This was after I went to Canadian tire and balked at the $79.99 price tag for the cheapest wrench they had.

UncleBen, I thought you just bought rice.

A note to anyone who buys a torque wrench, make sure you reset the torque after using every time or it will very quickly go out of calibration.
