I think you need to add shoulder pain at 60 FT LB's.

Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.

...and your back goes out at 100 lb/ft (torque is pounds/feet, not foot/pounds).

I like my torque in kilogram meters, but apparently that's "wrong" now, and the correct way to refer to torque is in Newton-meters.

Yeah, all my apples fell down too!
My head was so full of metal work, I didn't pick them until Newton had had his way with them.
