Turn of the nut

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Why not just use a DTI (Direct tension indicating) washer under the bolt head?  I think you add an extra washer and then the gap is to be 5 thousands when tight.  then you don't have to worry about the turn of the nut method. the washer will show you that is tensioned.  I like the DTI Squirter type for easy inspection
