Just an after thought on the subject of torque settings, adding any sort of lubricant to the thread will lessen the torque required. Most torque settings are quoted for `dry 'threads thus tightening by feel becomes more relevant.

I always put some lubricant on threads when assembling as I want to be able to undo it later. When you have fought with so many rusted up threads, you think ahead.

Lubricating threads, for me, is a habit I am glad to admit to after a lifetime of fighting with dry threads.

I think I'll put some low strength loctite on when I rebuild them. And of course will observe the slightly reduced torque figures!

Will that be the mole grips or the stilsons then, or in my case a pair of `dogs`, now that really is giving my age away.

I think I'll stick to the Allen key in this case.....
