How to convert between inch/lbs and ft/lbs?

I bet CJDave will know this! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I had a metric upbringing and would like to know how to convert between inch/lbs and ft/lbs torque values. My guess is to divide or multiply by 12 ?!? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Not sure.

I think youve got it!

12 inch lbs = 1 foot lb

Re: How to convert between inch/lbs and ft/lbs?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Just remember it this way. A foot pound is one pound of weight hanging out on the end of a one foot long wrench that is clamped on the shaft or on the bolt. An inch pound is that same pound on a wrench that is only one inch long. 12 inch pounds would equal one foot pound.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
