    I purchased an Icon 1/2 inch drive 50-250 ft/lbs torque wrench today. The instructions state that before every single use, you MUST set the adjustment to its maximum value and back down to its minimum value 3 times. This seems excessive and I’ve never heard of this. Should setting it back to 50 after every use be sufficient? Also, is it really necessary to get it calibrated 6 months, or can I get buy with every few years if I’m just torquing general items and not engine building?
