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.

Being here on Flag beach for the next 6 months and foiling nearly every day has given me time to try to find the point where this self loosening, "magic" front mast bolt to fuse phenomenon becomes a problem,
'The 6mm bolts are stainless steel into a stainless steel fixing, so grease is not needed, and better avoided as it attracts sand, unless of course you rarely dismantle the 2 parts,
Would highly recommend using some lube, such as Tefgel (Or another S/S type anti-seize). That sound is the Stainless welding together at little points and then breaking loose. One day it will be permanently stuck.Foil wrote: ↑Sat Oct 17, 2020 9:38 amIf you tighten up too hard you hear a nasty creak sound, and this sounds so wrong

I believe cone connection settles in a bit after a first and a second sessions following the assemble. Then bolt doesn’t loose up if you don’t disassemble the foil
I have had a Moses quiver for a couple of years with frequent use and no issues.
