    1/2 is always better; stronger. 10-100lbs is good for most applications.

    Depending on what size you get and what size your sockets are you may also need to buy an adapter...

    I use a half inch and a reducer for 3/8ths applications. I still need a 1/4 inch, inch-pound torque wrench, but all the decent ones cost eleventy billion dollars.
