Label Text:
This device for transforming circular motion into linear motion uses an off centered channeled wheel attached to a primary start wheel. As this large start wheel turns, a pivot in the channeled wheel is pushed through the channel. This ultimately drives the bar in an alternation, forward and backward motion. - Dr. Roberto A. Guatelli
