It's all in the gearing....Here's a quick and dirty method
'The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilised community against his will, is to prevent harm to others. He cannot rightfully be compelled for his own good, or because, in the opinion of others, it would be wise, or even right. These are good reasons for persuading him, but not for compelling him.' : John Stuart MillOn 8 December 2011 08:16, Rob Glover <ama3655@...> wrote:
Wes -Sounds like what you're looking for is a double acting piston driven motor. You'll need to know how many watts (or some other measure of power) output you want in order to size it. Input pressure and volume are the other 2 variables. If you know 2 of the 3 variables the design will leap out, or at least start to reveal itself.good luck, and have fun - FatRob

I'm working on a compressed air, pedal-assist system. I'm looking for an air-powered motor that can deliver reasonable torque @ lower RPMs and with great efficiency. If anyone that has any leads to such a motor, I'd appreciate it.
