Yeah, so I have to disagree with you on this one. This is simply not true. I grew up on a farm where all of our power was generated by wind. And later by solar as well. In the 70's and 80's. This was...

Hi Bill,

Effect of thread lube on final torque value?

Just curious how lube on the thread will affect the final torque value percentage wise? Can't find anything online. Is it 10%, 30% or more?
