The cal lab I was talking about had a box that was set up with ratchet, the box could measure torque. They had a standing deal,, if they called a torque value and you hit it within a range they would buy you lunch, if you missed you bought them lunch. They very seldom paid out.. This was a place with some really well trained mechanical people.

I use a torque wrench because it only takes 1 screw-up to buy it...

I also have Tengtools wrenches and I'm happy with them, especially for the price.
