inch-pounds"?
**SNIP**

>1) I think it should be "kilogram-metres" outside the US..... **SNIP**

1. **SNIP** "As to the replacement for "inch-pounds," **SNIP** The =
usual SI (not metric) unit is
"kilogram-meters". =20

(OK, I've had enough **SNIPS** of this stuff for today)

conversions you desire.
