5. TIGHTENING METAL FASTENERS
When torquing a fastener, select a torque wrench whose range (Table 7) fits the required torque
value. A torque wrench is most accurate from 25 percent to 75 percent of its stated range. A torque wrench
with a stated range of 0 to 100 will be most accurate from 25 to 75 foot pounds. The accuracy of readings will
decrease as you approach 0 foot-pounds or 100 foot-pounds. The ranges in Table 7 are based on this principle.
