Torque Wrench

I looked for some information on Torque Wrenches, but not finding what I need. I have a torque specification of 5.8 ft lbs (8Nm), but my low end torque wrench has a dial with scales available of 0-11.1 M KGS, and 0-960 inch pounds....? How does this work?

I am going to go and buy a high end torque wrench as I have always needed one and I have some money now that I may not have later. Any reccomendations for a brand and model also would be apprecitated...

Duhhh! I should've known that whole multiply by 12 thing... what about a place to get a good quality torque wrench that won't need calibration...

Any good parts store should be able to sell you a good wrench. They should be pre-calibrated.
