    East Bay: Torque wrench calibration?

    Looking for recommendations for where to get my torque wrench calibrated. Realized I've had it for more than 20 years without ever knowing if it's accurate.

    Could be out of the East Bay if that's what's best.
    Cheers.

    What brand of torque wrench brother? Last time I did mine, in all honesty, I had our local Snap-On Mobile Rep look at mine, and it isn't even a Snap-On.

    So, have you tried or asked the mobile tool reps that visit auto repair shops?

    We have a company that we send to certify ours at work. I can't remember the name but Monday I'll take a look at the calibration certificate and post again

    I have a Shimano PRO branded torque wrench that I inherited and I'm convinced it's off. I would also love to know of anywhere I can take/send mine to get calibrated. Keep us posted!

    I was just thinking about this over the weekend while building a new bike up!
    I suppose you could probably check one against another to see if they're consistent, but not necessarily accurate!

    Ok so I'll attach photos, but this is the company out of San Leandro, we use here at work for all our certified torque spec work
