Sorry, you've flubbed the capitalization of Newton in Newton-meter. The
abbreviation for it is actually N-m. This is in accordance with the
McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms (Fifth Edition) and
the Chambers Science and Technology Dictionary

>>>Jim Vinokuroff and Tim Altom correctly identified the newton-metre as the
unit for torque, but lose points for capitalizing newton. The correct
conversion factor, which I had previously flubbed in a private mail to Stan
Radowski, is 1 ft-lb = 1.35582 n-m OR 1 n-m = 0.73756 ft-lb. In the original
example, 45 in-lb +/- 5 in-lb works out to 5.1 +/- 0.56 n-m. In the real
world, we would probably use 5.0 +/- 0.5 n-m. So far, I have seen torque
wrenches calibrated in in-oz, ft-lb, and n-m, but never in-lb.<<<
