After many years of guessing the torque of various bolts and screws on rifles and scopes I saw one of those Fat Wrenches at my local gun shop. I asked the owner/gunsmith if they were worth the money. His reply was to reach over to his bench and pick one up. He said they sure are worth the money. He tested the Fat Wrench with an accurate guage and the several he tested were right on. He claims he won't be without one so I bought one.

Question this measures in inch pounds. Is there some sort of chart to relate the inch pound to foot pounds.

Thanks Rowdy I answered my own question by goning online. 12 inch pounds equal one foot pound.
