Anyone know a good website to calculate the required pulley sizes, number of belts, belt sections etc to transmit a certain amount of power at known rpm?

I have a small DOS program put out by Dayco that will calculate all the requirements you need from simple data that you enter...
If you want me to email it just give the word...I think it is about 600Kb in size...

Ringer, yes, I'd love a copy of the DOS program.
Ryobiguy, great sites, especially the gizmology one - lots of good stuff there!
