It also depends on the coefficient of friction between the threads, and the head and the fuselage, and also the diameter of the head.Onda wrote: ↑Thu Oct 15, 2020 2:51 pmI posted an official table in another post some months ago, see link below.
The maximum torque is a function of the type of thread, the diameter of the thread and the material the screw is made of (tensile strength).
For stainless steel screws in M6 / tensile class 6.8 the maximum torque is 7.7 Nm (newton-meter). Which really is not much. You can very easily over-tighten such a little screw with a normal torx-key. So be careful.
