|i've got a set of crankarms at home that have a
torque spec that reads like in the pic, should I assume
that it's "between" 32-and 38 newton meteres?
i'm guessing it's about 300 inch pounds,
never seen a "division" sign used to express this?

|In Europe they use this to say 32 to 38 Newton Meters. I do not have my conversion table close by to tell you what the British equivalent is in inch pounds. However, I think it should be 23.6 to 28 lb.ft or 283 inch pounds to 336 inch lbs. (in, other words, I pretty sure, but not absolutely sure).
Many torque wrenches have both scales on them. I have made a habit of using N.M after a previous screw up.
|You've got it right. 38nm = 28 ft-lb = 336 in-lb. (nm)||Kerry Irons|

|I would torque that to 35 nm. There is a message.||the bull|

|That way you are not at the max or min but in the middle.|
