No, Pete, you're not all wet! You're exactly right. I should have recalled my high school physics. It really is a lever and W1 X L1 = W2 X L2. Therefore, you're absolutely correct in saying the force on the rotor bolts could be several thousand pounds and probably is all of that!
Exactly right again. I need to do some engineering now. To the drawing board!
Thanks, Pete. I appreciate it! So simple, I should have seen it. Intuitively, I remembered the mechanical advantage (or disadvantage in this case) but just couldn't quantify it.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
