I would have thought that the wrench would still be OK.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Ive had mine for a few years now and ive abused itin various ways the most common being forgeting to set it to minimum after use and its still in calibration so i think yours will be fine

The older I get the better I was, must be mad not got enough money to be excentric
