    I would avoid a 'cheap' torque wrench like the plague, and forget it if it doesnt come with a calibration certificate. A torque wrech is as much a precison instrument as it is a 'spanner'.

    I would vote for halfords, being made by Norbar, but more than £40 (worth it though!)

    It doesn't go to 230 nm as you requested.

    Have you looked at the Halfords Professional / Advanced range as these tools carry a lifetime guarantee and are very well made

    Its not calibrated; I really dont see the point..

    If you want to do a bolt up to 200Nm, thats what you want, not 184Nm. or 209Nm The only way to make sure your getting 200Nm is to get a calibrated wrench.
