Get a 1/2" AND a 1/4" drive torque wrench. You can not use socket adapters to convert 1/2" to 1/4" with a torque wrench. A 1/2" torque wrench can not go down low enough to torque small bolts. That's a bad practice anyway as a 1/2" ratchet with a 1/4" socket on it will give you too much mechanical advantage and you'll end up breaking the head off of the bolt. Small tool for small bolts, big for big.
I've got 5 different torque wrenches to cover different ranges of torque.
