  1. Thank you both for responding! I did some research on "moments" and learned a little bit, but I still have some questions. I will put some actual dimensions and other specifics below. Maybe that will help. If you do decide to respond I would like to know exactly how you figure that out for future project and just general knowledge. I am OBVIOUSLY not an engineer and my extent of math knowledge goes to Algebra II in high school, but I enjoy math and love learning. Thanks again! As I stated in the original post, I am building a press essentially. I have a sheet metal punch that requi
  2. Hello. I am designing a machine that uses a pneumatic cylinder to operate a hole punch to punch through sheet metal. I will be using a lever to get a mechanical advantage to provide the force necessary. I am trying to figure out what kind of force would be experienced by the fulcrum or pivot point. I'm not having any luck finding information on how to calculate that. I would appreciate any help that you could provide. I know I haven't provided much detail here but I can give whatever information is needed to calculate that. Thanks.
