    torque values

    how can I convert ft lbs/ft to just ft lbs? I don't have the real nice torque wrenches, ones I do have only measure ft lbs.

    Are you wanting to convert in/lbs to ft/lbs? Never really heard of ft lbs/ft..

    1in/lbs=0.08333ft/lbs

    ... Are you trying to convert lbf-ft to lbf-in... if so... there are 12 inch pounds in every foot pound. Example 10 lbf-ft = 120 lbf-in.

    ok maybe that's my first problem, is reading and understanding what it means. the most basic that even I get is the value ft lbs. but I see the form of ft lbs-ft or -in. how is that actually read? ft lbs per ft or in?

    I'm confused The most common torque wrenches read either foot lbs, inch lbs, or newton meters. What number does your wrench start with, and whats it's highest setting

    The SI unit for torque is the newton meter (N·m). In Imperial and U.S. customary units, it is measured in foot pounds (ft·lbf) (also known as 'pound feet') and for smaller measurement of torque: inch pounds (in·lbf) or even inch ounces (in·ozf)

    Those are the same values... just worded a little differently.
