    This will actually alter the torque setting due to the lever action. There are conversions online.

    Get a crowfoot in the appropriate size and use a normal torque wrench.



    I am not a gunsmith. YMMV.

    35 ft/lbs is "snug but don't lean on it."
    I just don't feel safe in gun free zones...

    My grandpa (an old WWII Navy guy) told me all bolts “require a Japanese grunt to make sure there’re German”.

    Basically twist until you make a ‘hhizzaccaak’ noise that will ensure that it is ’guetentite’.


    —-but in a seriousness, go buy a torque wrench, so many things require this. A click type will be the best, and as others have said back it off to relieve pressure between uses. Or ask a friend or neighbor; someone you know has one.

    Harbor sounds good. I am pretty sure there is one close to my work.

    I recommend getting a click type and not a beam type. To me they are much easier to use and usually more precise.
    this


    not this

    It's all true!!! The Boogieman IS real, and you found him!!!

    Agreed. I have used a Harbor Freight torque wrench to rebuild 3 engines and have checked it against more expensive models and always been satisfied. If I was using it every day to make a living, I’d spend more money, but for me, it’s just fine, Just remember to upload it after you are done.

    True, but simple math will get you where you need to be.

    A click-style will be what you want... But you can make due with a beam-style in a pinch. Don't have to unload those, either.

    I inherited a large beam-style Craftsman from my wife's grandpa years ago, and a few years ago I bought an inexpensive inch/lb beam style. Not ideal - but they work.
    Amazing Grace, how sweet was her sound.

    If you just have one gun to do, I'd put out the word in this thread and possibly start another in gunsmithing, asking to borrow the necessary wrenches for the job.
