Torque specs....
« on: October 21, 2003, 03:49:06 PM »
OK... got a problem.  Engineering needs a chart, list or whatever for torque specs.  Particularly of a 6MM bolt in aluminum.  Anyone have or know where I can find this?  Net site or anything?  Our machinists handbook don't have it......
Thanks folks.....

Thanks folks....

Being sticklers for accuracy, we went with Hendie's specs (#2 to be precise!).
I think we got it under control ... but then, I don't get paid to think.....
