What kind of expert are you looking for???

If this is checking the theory behind the cable and pulleys, it should possible to help.

Well I am ok with the concepts but not good at the exact cause and effect of cable and pulley mechanical advantage. I have a problem where one area of this fitness device needs half the travel of another area. Ideally the area with the desired half travel would have a mechanical advantage so that its for example 1/2 pound would be equal in resistance to 1 pound at the end of the front cable where the weight plates are.

So "B" needs to go half the distance as "A"

1/2 a pound at X needs to equal 1 pound at Y

The pulleys you see can be arranged in any way or more pulleys/cables added. Please help!

Thanks!

Hi there,

From your diagram, I can't see if the cables in A are attached directly to the weight stack, or if you want to hook them to a pulley. The result will be different in the two cases scenarios.
