To tighten the screws, I use a small hex wrench (3 or 4 inches long) and turn it as far as I can using only finger strength (no biceps, no shoulder or chest muscles), and if I spin the wheel after that, it will usually go about 15 rotations. I do not own a torque wrench, and this system is not very precise, but for me it has always worked.
I have a torque wrench and have used 4 nm as a base level that I torque them to.
