    that is a wonderful write-up...just 1 important factor that was left out.
    You know...the 1 factor that might make it actually usefull.........what grade bolt!!!!!!!!....lol

    here is where you want to be

    http://engineershandbook.com/Tables/torque.htm

    for common STEEL bolts grade 5 - 8

    great for "rule of thumb" stuff....quick reference only.... integral washer grade 9 7/16-20 bolt torque.....lol......is going to be a littlebit different as the washer face cause friction...it's grade 9 :eek: etc......
    for stupid bolts...go here
    http://www.mgtd.ca/Screw Torque.htm

    memorize it..

    test on Monday ;)

    There should be a write up on torque wrenches themselves on here, there are a lot out there that are not that accurate.

    I've always been told (and read) the beam torque wrenches are the most accurate ones, though it will be hard to read in certain situations.
