Sears. I have several beam type ( I prefer them) and click type craftsman torque wrenches and they've always done the job perfectly. And if they break or mess up lifetime warranty.

I have narrow down to craftsman or lowe's Kobalt. Craftsman only has a 1 year warranty. Kobalt has a life time warranty. Would it better to get 1/2" or 3/8"?
