Hard to quantify the exact forces.

This is a tail vice screw. So, if you imagine the ‘Head’/thicker end with a wooden bar going through it (which is the screw handle), this is about 250mm long, the hub being 60mm in diameter, so you have a force being applied on the end of that by my hand and arm (I don’t work out, and my arm isn’t that strong) to turn the screw that clamps a work piece.

It is possible that the wooden handle passing through the head will break first, I suppose.
