Model: 023 Eccentric Drive
This type of eccentric is the most commonly used. Application of it can be found in No. 155 (control valves for an engine).
[Virginia Downward & William M. Clark, 1930]

[Editor’s Note: The eccentric has the center of the circle rotate that acts as a virtual crank in a slider-crank mechanism. The eccentric was often used in control linkage in steam engines. Eccentric type mechanisms can be found in the Reuleaux-Voigt models in the E Series, models E-1 to E-7. FCM]
