Model: V05 Adjustable Belt Drive for Parallel Axis Pulleys
In this model, both input and output rotational motions are about parallel, vertical axes. The pulleys are connected with a belt drive and the plane of the input and output pulleys can be slightly different. The transfer of motion is accomplished by using a horizontal axel with two smaller pulleys. All four pulley wheels are crowned to produce self alignment of the belt on the pulleys (See model V-8).
