Here is a Exell calculator which is very useful for the woodsplitter crowd, and anyone designing something.
When you open the sheet it is in read-only mode and you have to do Save as... and then it will accept your info.
The red numbers in the spreadsheet can be changed to your parameters, and all other numbers will be re-calculated.

Ironman,

Thank you very much for posting the calculator. After I saved it I tried using it and found that the image is larger than my screen, and I have no way (that I am aware of) to make the page fit the screen.........any ideas. If you need any info as far as what operating system (XP) or other items, please let me know. I like this calculator and want to get the most out of it.........thanks.

Hi, Pat.

In Excel, under View, choose Zoom.

You should get a list of percentages with radio buttons from which to choose.

Pick a lower number and see how that works.

I have a couple stashed away on my work computer too,

this one is good cause it covers the belts, and displacement of pumps etc, there is a little more to it then just jaming something together eh

thanks

Thanks Ironman for posting this calculator. This is something that I have been needing for a long time. I'm always having to figure things the hard way. Kevin

You're Welcome. And thanks to Princess Auto Limited for giving me the thing, it's our version of Harbour Freight.
Maybe we should ask Cutter to move this to the Project Manager area.
I know having all the needed calculations in one place like that is a real bonus when you need a belt or something and have to drive 60 miles for it, you want top know it's gonna fit.
