snapping bolts

help, i don't want to buy a 30 buck torque wrench, so in the meantime i've been using a car torque wrench for my crankset. how should i meassure the torque for the rest of my bolts so that i don't end up snapping them?

any tips? i want my bolts to be tight, but i don't want them so tight that i hear a squeak, then i have to worry about it the entire trip.

yea, i know. i stopped using the car torque wrench. bad idea.
