Do you guys torque stuff dry or put oil on it?

The torque settings you see in the manual you see are for clean and dry threads and are reduced by 10% with lightly oil threads, unless otherwise noted.

Thanks Matthew I was wondering if there was a correction factor for lubed threads

No lubed, lightly oiled. Thread lubricant or other thread lubricants and anti seizes may require a reduction of up to 30% or even more. The manufacturer should have an average torque reduction percent for their product. If they don't have it then I would use a product that does.

Onions.n.Butter is starting off with a positive reputation.
Precision Instruments split beam. Very similar to the Snap-on, Identical to the Mac. Been using it every day for the last 5 years, still accurate and works like new. I've got both the 3/8 and 1/2, and a Gearwrench 1/4 which is ok, but it's got the twist handle which sucks for the bigger ones
