    It mean's I have knowledge above and beyond about mechanics, be it tools or fasteners, than any of you hacks. There, I said it.

Do you think it's important to be accurate when torquing carbon components?

    Any cheap torque wrench is just that = cheap and not accurate - especially when torquing fasteners at low newton meters. That is the bottom line. You get what you pay for in this world.

    Bottom line is this: Shopping for tools at Harbor Freight is like buying furniture at the Dollar General. Sure, it will work, but the whole purpose of torquing is to be accurate. I'd trust not torquing at all rather than using a junk tool. Breaking fasteners sucks.

    It sound like maybe you work on an assembly line at GM if you have personaly tightened 10,000 fastners

    Only torqued 10k bolts? So you started turning wrenches in 2018? Or you don't torque lugnuts?

    Is a lug nut considered a "Fastener"? I'm sorry, I'm not an ASE tech.

    The guy seems torqued a little too tight.

    Is ASE the automotive equivalent of PSIA certification? Do I need to be certified before I attempt to change my derailleur? Should I use a Snap-On torque wrench?

    You need to be a certified Level II tool.

    Seriously, the Husky ones at Home Depot are rated well. Never used one on a bicycle, but why not I guess.
