It's probably happened to most of us. I tend to overuse my torque wrench as a result of a couple of bad experiences. Those darned engineers tend to be pretty good in matching torque required to the strength required for each fastener. I am also sometimes amazed at the strength of certain fasteners when subjected to the herculean forces of a breaker bar and pipe extension. On a related note, I have a dislike of the Philips head and enjoy working with Robertson fasteners. Too bad that Henry Ford asked Mr. Robertson for wooden storage boxes to be thrown in for free so he could use the wood for the Model T interior structure and Mr. Roberstson refused and there was no deal. Torx are decent but get scary when the head corrodes in rust belt ares due to the intricate nature of the design.
