Dividing by 12 will do it. On the other hand, the bottom end of your ft-lb wrench isn't likely to go low enough. Sounds like an excuse for a new tool!

Yup, I agree. You will find you need at least one more torque wrench to cover off the in/lbs. Some of the specs are pretty low and your ft/lb torque wrench may not be as accurate at the bottom end. Who can be unhappy about more tools :clap:

I always torque to the lower number. If the spec says 55-70 in/lbs I tourque to 55. I also move up in increments, torque to 25 then 55.

@gree:

I believe you are not suppose to use the first and last 2% of the settings as well.

I just crank it until I hear it crack, then back off 1/4 turn. :blink:
