How do I use the torque wrench?

I need someone to walk me through the use of the torque wrench that came with my socket set. My torque wrench came with a socket set 244 piece set for $299.00.

What is a Newton meter and how do I use it on the torque wrench?

Do a certain number of inch pounds equal a foot pound?

There are several Craftsman torque wrenches that Sears handles, and I am not sure which torque wrench actually came with the tool set that you purchased I would assume that you have the beam torque wrench. This beam style is the basic torque wrench.

This torque wrench points to the pounds/Newton meters setting that you need. This will allow you to get accurate calibration.

Newton meter is the metric measurement which is 25.4 mm to the foot. There are 12 inch pounds to the foot pound.
