I've not seen a 1/4" drive torque wrench but I believe they are out there. I have a 3/8" drive beam type torque wrench that reads 0-100 in-lbs (96 in-lbs = 8 ft-lbs)that I use for M6x1.00 auto trans pan gasket bolts and the like. Nice to have but about the same price as my Craftsman 3/8" drive clicker that covers the "normal" stuff to around 90 ft-lbs.

"Gently" is the operative guideline to do it by feel. Use a short 1/4" drive ratchet and position your fingers halfway between the head and the end to minimize torque potential.
