Sbchev, I agree I just don't see how a pointer type (I am assuming he means a beam type) wrench could even work if clamped in a vise, besides the possibility of damage to the wrench. Theoretically I suppose a dial type wrench may read correctly if clamped in a vise but I would not do that to any precision tool The simple and proper way to do this is to have it calibrated by a shop, check with a large service center or car dealer service shop to find where they have it done in your area. Even the local Sears here, at least some years back, would have any brand wrench calibrated for a small charge.
