I'm happy with the generic torque wrench I got from amazon, but the one limitation it has compared to the fancy Park Tools model is that it only measures torque in one direction, and one side of the bottom bracket is left-hand-threaded (lefty tighty, if you will).
So side two is approximated right after I did side one. At least I can make sure I didn't undershoot by a bunch

Really not impressed with the Raleigh factory here. Yikes.
