    Aldi and Lidl have been selling a cheap one for quite some time at around £16.99. Okay not the top of the range but certainly better than none at all. I bought one a while ago, and when the youngest son checked the accuracy against his expensive one, as he was taking the **** out of mine, cannot remember the brand of his, but it is a top quality one and the difference between the 2 was only about 2nm, certainly good enough for most car jobs.
    I dont tinker with cars these days, But I still use it for checking wheel nuts are at correct torque.

    Just remember to release the spring pressure when its not being used.
