    Gear Clamp Design--Describe Friction Force

    I need to know how much frictional force is exerted on both sides of the collet (the piece in the middle of the image) when a force 'p' is applied by the cap nut.
    (See attachment)

    This is my first post here. Let me attachment.php?attachmentid=39185&stc=1&d=1316723924.jpg know if I'm being too vague. :)
