HOW TO USE TORQUE TABLE (Continued)
When torquing a fastener, select a torque wrench whose range (Table H-3, p. H-5) 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
lb-ft. The accuracy of readings will decrease as you approach 0 lb-ft or 100 lb-ft. The
ranges in Table H-3 are based on this principle.
