I know this is a troll thread

but I use a torque screwdriver when using alumiconn connectors...true story
That's a good point. I honestly never worried about it til I started installing alumiconns to by the 1000's. I've got used to that little german screwdriver and now I use on all my devices.

Do you use a torque wrench to properly tighten all your devices ?

Yes

No


If no, why?
NO

Well we do not attempt to do that kind of work its the liability of course. We sub out all torque work to a qualified contractor its just to much for us but we do tighten our conduit couplings and connectors we attend a class for that its a two week course .When we finish the class we each get a tee shirt with a logo that's says torque dogs.
