I managed to quantify the torque applied to the grubscrew on my boring bar yesterday. My 120 degree turn, produced by years of practice, produces a torque of 889 N mm. Unbrako recommend a torque of 1863 N mm on an M4 grubscrew, while HoloKrome recommend 2270 N mm. Unbrako even state this torque can be applied with a standard Allen Key.
While my torque is just under a 1000 N mm less than the lowest recommended value, this does still equate to a loading of 1111 N on the push rod, in old money 250 lb(f).
