    Just had a look at my new Pug workshop BOL and they are quoting torque
    wrench settings as "daNm" WTF? TBS wheel nut TW setting stated as
    "9.0daNm +- 10%"

    Googling gives not a jot of help, (altough my Mojo maybe at fault here!)
    All my coversion tables that I have make no mention of the scale.
    Any clooos from the FOAK Would be most welcomed.

    I had a guess that as it's gonna be french a deca (deka) may be slid in
    there somewhere.
    Thanks for the pointer. I'll work on the 10x theory then.
    Taa.
