torque wrenchs

i got a micrometer adjustable torq wrench that has a 120-960 in. lb. range. How do i convert that into normal lb?

how easy is it to screw up the calibration on one of these? How often do they need to be serviced? is it very pricey?

1 in.lb = 0.0833333333 ft.lb

So your torque wrench has a range of 10ft.lbs - 80 ft.lbs . If you always unwind it after use and be careful not to drop it or knock it around it should give you years of service. Store it in it's own box so it doesn't get abused by the other tools in your regular toolbox .

WARNING:NEVER USE AS A PRY BAR OR CHISEL ALWAYS WEAR ADEQUATE EYE PROTECTION

Divide by 12.

It depends on the quality as to how long it will stay in calibration.
