 What are many of the sources of errors associated with using a torque wrench?

Why use a bolt gage with a torque wrench?

Quote from Spiralock

We quote from Spiralock's website:

"Achieving the proper tension is extremely difficult to do. With STANDARD threads, tests have shown that for a given torque, the tension in the bolt can vary as much as 50%. This is why torque recommendations are recommendations, or guidelines, and not "cast-in-stone" values. However, testing has shown Spiralock to be significantly more consistent in torque/tension relationships than standard threads.

There are approximately 75 factors which affect the tension in a bolt when torque is applied. Here is a partial list of those factors: hardness of all parts, surface finishes, material type, plating, lubricants, tightening speed, thread fit, and surface pressures. Some of these variables can be identified, but seldom can they be characterized for a production lot. The only way to determine the "ideal" torque for any application is through testing."

We recommend the reader visit Spiralock's excellent website for additional useful technical information.
