Almost bought a torque wrench, but then went down the rabbit hole researching...

Any recommendations for an adjustable one? Need 3nm and up
The Park TW 5.2 has served me well.

And storage. Make sure you zero it out before you put it away.

I bought one of these and use it to calibrate all of my torque wrenches. These are very accurate and stay accurate. A torque wrench will have a small hole that you use a hex key to turn a screw to loosen or tighten the spring. That's how it's calibrated at the factory.
