Ah, I see what you're saying. I thought you were just straight up telling him not to use one. I bought a cheap one off of amazon, then converted 6 ft-lbs to 72 in-lbs. As long as you're within 5ish in-lbs on either side, you shouldn't have too much to worry about. The wrench I bought would not do torque to the left, so I ended up dissembling the ratcheting head and reversing it. Worked like a charm, and I think it only cost me around $50. If you absolutely can't bring yourself to buy a torque wrench ... then you could do it by feel, but I'd still be nervous.
