    I have a six year old "click" style torque wrench. I'm starting to wonder if it is accurate. Anyway to check/calibrate these?

    Buy a beam type wrench. Find a socket for the clicker that will fit the square socket adapter on the beam so the wrenches are hooked together. Set the clicker and watch the beam to see the torque level when the clicker breaks.

    You can check multiple levels and in both directions. Beam wrenches are cheaper but harder to use. Just make sure the beam is at zero with no load.
