I use the Armstrong method. Common sense tells me when it is the right tightness.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

I was in error it's a Facom model R.203DA 6-35 NM .I must have Wiha on the brain or something because a lot of our specialty tools at work are Wiha .I think Facom might be British ??

Kind of a neat torque wrench originally used for some gauge at work no longer used and discarded when the guage was obsoleted .I jumped on it like ugly on ape . ;D

YEOW, Al, do you realize what that thing is worth? Depending on source any where from 260 to 1250$! No wonder you jumped on it!

 ;D I knew it was top notch but I didn't know that costly .I looked them up on flea bay and they have two,100 and 150 respectfully .A couple of dial type Snap-ons about the same price .


Now because torque of threaded fasteners is part of my "day " job I'm a tad fussy about critical fasteners .In the case of chainsaws I list those as cylinder bolts and case bolts .The rest get the old armstrong method .Righty tighty ,lefty loosey .Tight is tight too tight is broke . ;)
