    Converting foot to inch pounds

    I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but also wary of some of my own ideas. Right now I'm seeking input on the idea of using an inch-pound torque wrench in place of a foot-pound wrench when a manual gives torque value in foot pounds. For example, the book wants 5 foot pounds of torque on this bolt. My foot-pound wrench has a range of 5-80 (or whatever) pounds, so I'm inclined to use my inch-pound wrench set to 60 inch-pounds. Is it a directly proportional conversion? Snooping around the interweb I get the sense that it is. -thanks in advance

    Yes. 1 ft lbs = 12 in lbs.
    5 ft lbs = 60 in lbs.
