My drill has a torque setting (0 to 30). I don't know what the numbers actually mean in terms of ft-lbs or in-lbs, but I usually set it around 26 and crank them down until it torques out.

I do pretty much the same. Have a Makita cordless with six "torque" settings, with #six being full lock. I set it on five, run the scissor until torque release, and then give each jack 1.5 turns with the manual speed handle. That appears to put the same amount of pressure on each of the six jacks and no point on the frame is unbalanced.
