When torquing a fastener, select a torque wrench whose range (Table H-3, p. H-4) 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 foot-pounds. The accuracy of readings will decrease as you approach
0 foot-pounds or 100 foot-pounds. The ranges in Table H-3 are based on this principle.
