torque wrench

I read that on a click type Torque Wrench you have to Calibrate it after a while. Is this correct? If so, how do you do it?

Torque wrenches as well as good multimeters should be calibrated annually. However the casual wrencher is probably not going to use or abuse his torque wrench enough to throw it out of spec in a few yearly uses. As long as you keep them clean, lubed and stored properly (adjusting nut loose) you should not have and issue. There are a few ways to calibrate them yourself, just save yourself the headache and send it out to be calibrated if you feel it's out of adjustment by more than 4-5%.
