I used a piece of wood to tape to the blinds stick and a scale to measure force. Not as good as a torque wrench but whatever.

The wooden lever was 3.25" for the center of the blinds stick. Max force applied was 90 grams.

So thats a torque of 10.3 oz in or 743 g cm.

Now I just need some recomendations for motors!
