After inputing my design data into the Chain Geometry Spreadsheet, I have obtained the following:
Max Chain Tension = 39.9 lbs / 18.1 kg
Min Chain Tension = 7.15 lbs / 3.24 kg
Counter Weight = 13.5 lbs / 6.1 kg (per chain)
What I would like to know is the following:
- Where do my chain tensions stand when compared to an expected or an ideal?
- What is the appropriate counterweight per chain that I should be using?
@dlang or @madgrizzle, I’m tagging you two because you seem to have contributed the most to this subject. There has been a lot o time spent discussing this but my forum searches don’t seem to be coming up with a specific answer to my questions
