I gree with blablac,

Years of experience can certainly teach you the correct 'feel' for the ideal torque for a given fastener. I rarely use a torque wrench myself other than for critical stretch bolts used in connecting rods etc. Over the years I have won a few bets with people that I can hand tighten within a couple of ft/lb of the required tension.

There is a certain point where the resistance increases very suddenly.... when you learn to feel it you're pretty much on the spec.
