I could really use some help from gear experts like you folks. I need to make a clamshell-style clamp that is able to clamp down on an object when a squeeze trigger is activated. The trigger needs to interact with a gear train that will be inside the handle.

Picture a bar clamp type of clamp that you see at a hardware store except instead of the movable jaw traversing linearly down the bar, the clamp I need to develop will pivot about the handle to clamp an object.

I am offering $100 to anyone who can show me how to do this. The gear train needs to be able to convert a one pound input force into a 75 inch-pound torque.

I can send more specifics if you feel you can help. Thank you very much.
