English term or phrase: Turn from finger tight/Flats from finger tight
Torque values are measured using a torque wrench, or other methods such as "Turn From Finger Tight” (TFFT) and “Flats From Finger Tight” (FFFT)......
Aldrig hørt om disse metoder :-))
Er der nogen der kan hjælpe her?

Explanation:
Denne oversættelser er ikke helt god nok, men den dækker over det, at man spænder "på fornemmelsen". Se linket, 2. hovedafsnit, hvor det understreges, at kun ægte fagfolk er i stand til at lave det lille nummer :o)

Explanation:
This refers to methods of torque loading nuts, bolts e.t.c.by tightening them as far as possible by hand (with fingers) as a starting reference and then using a visual reference to further increase the torque to the required amount with a tool (spanner e.t.c.)

\"Turn from finger tight\" means the number of additional specified revolutions of the nut/bolt beyond the finger tight point that are required to achieve the required torque. \"flats from finger tight\", is also a simple concept but requires knowledge of fastener specification terminology to be fully understood. Suffice it to say that one \"flat\" represents 1/6th of a single complete rotation of the fastener. I won\'t bore you with any more technical explanations.
