I'm new to the forum so thanks in advance for any help. We would like to make a fixture for rotating large drums in a paint booth. I would like to know how to calculate the torque required at the trunnions to rotate the drum using two drive trunnions (with 2 idler trunnions). I've included a sketch with, hopefully, all the required info. It's been a while since I've done this type of calculating and can't find and specific examples. I'm more looking for HOW to calculate this not just necessarily the answer but the answer would be nice ;-)

Thanks again!
