Thanks, for the info. I will look into one at that price. Translating N-m to in-lb just involves multiplication and division. The formulas are easily found with Google or derived. But it would be better to have a dedicated wrench with the shooting tools rather than one day try to figure out where the bicycle torque wrench is. I use it to tighten bolts on carbon fibre parts—it is easy to over-tighten them and damage them. People don't realize the damage until their handlebars crack while climbing or the seat post in a crash or while descending. That's dangerous.

Not wasting any more time and energy tilting, Don Quixote-like, on a regulatory problem that, constitutionally, should not even exist in a free state.
I cannot change the world unlike my hero Samuel Adams—but I can change my place in it.
