Model: T11 Compound Screw Parallel Guide of Cadiat
A circular ring near the base of Model T-11 is constrained to vertical motion by four sliding constraints at the base. The ring is made to move vertically or parallel to itself by four ganged screw-pairs turned by a common crank at the top. Model T-11 is part of a set of three similar mechanisms include T-12 and T 13. Reuleaux’ use of the German term Schutzenzug in the Voigt Catalog does not translate clearly in 20th Century German-English technical dictionaries.
