Well, converting nm to In lbs is a bit difficult when you’re using the traditional calculator. But, it becomes easy if you know the exact values.

The matter becomes simpler if you can take it to a further step by using a special calculator that only converts between these units.

I have previously explained in our torque chart that “Torque” is a rotational force. While in Physics, it is the moment of force, a tendency that rotates a body around its pivotal point. Now, torque has many other units i.e., kg-cm, J/rad, etc.

What is A Newton meter?

But, the unit we’re gonna discuss is the Newton meter. The Newton meter is the SI-derived metric unit of torque and is also called moment. It is equal to 1 Joule and symbolized as “Nm”.

What is Inch pounds?

On the other hand, the inch-pound is another unit of torque. It is the force of 1 pound applied to 1 inch of distance from the pivot point. Symbolically it is written as In-lbs.

Torque Conversion Calculator

Now, both “Nm” and “In-lbs” are mostly used in physics and when dealing with tools that work on rotatory mechanisms.

Torque Conversion – Examples of Use

In our case, we can take drills as an example even if they are cordless, corded, hammer, rotary, or SDS. They all work on the same principle of torque.

The torque power for all of these drills is represented in Nm format or in In-lbs. It totally depends on the brand or manufacturer on which metric system they rely on.

Why Use The Calculator

In US countries, the metric system used for drills is in Inch-Pounds (In-lbs) while outside of the US most drill manufacturers use Newton Meter (Nm) as a torque unit.

That’s why it becomes difficult for those folks who are accustomed to the In-lbs system. While the drill or tool they’re getting is with Nm value. So, we have created a simple tool to convert the nm to in-lbs and In-lbs back to Nm.

How Torque Conversion Works

  • 1st – Just get the Nm (Newton Meter) of your drill.
  • 2nd – Add the value to the “Nm Value” section.
  • 3rd – The tool will automatically convert it for you.
  • 4th – The calculator itself gives value in the decimal format as well (135.60).
  •  5th – The slider only gives in digits format (135).

Besides using it for drills, it can be used for all other tools and works that use the same principle.

Nm To In lbs. Slider

Below is the nm to in lbs. conversion slider that works in the left and right direction to auto-convert the torque value.
