Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I was trying to calculate the output force of an arbor press given a specific input force.

There is no gear reduction, the lever arm is 12" and the gear pitch diameter is 1.5"

Basically I want to know how much force do I need to apply to the lever arm to produce 300lbs at the arbor head.

I broke out my statics book and I dont see anything exactly like this so I am not sure if its a simple moment calculation.

Any guidance is appreciated

Thanks!
