Hi All

I'm looking at the manual and seeing Torque in Nm

12/14 - using the line and two dots - divided by?

10 - 12 - minus?

Can someone please tell me how to read this or how to enter in Nm calculator.

The online calculator says 14 converts to 10 foot pounds. So I'm reading the divided by and minus signs as From this number 12 TO this number 14.

Thanks for your patience.

I believe the 12/14 and 10 - 12 are different ways of indicating a range:

12 N-m to 14 N-m

10 N-m to 12 N-m

...unless you see wildly different numbers like 10-100 or 120/14.

Where I come from, ten to twelve is written 10 - 12. It's usually obvious that this doesn't mean ten minus twelve.

Something like 10/12 would mean either ten or twelve depending (dry/wet or whatever is specified).

That's the way I do it...
I set my Digital Torque Wrench to the Lowest Nm Number.
By the time it Beeps, its usually hit the Higher number.

All my torque wrenches have both scales on them, no conversion needed.
