Description:
In this device, the platform on the right is maintained in an approximately horizontal position for small motions of the two coupled horizontal levers. According to the classic mobility criterion (See tutorial) this mechanism of six joints and five links (counting the grounded or fixed link) has a mobility of zero and is technically a structural truss and not a mechanism. However, the symmetry of the links allows small motions that are useful in weighing machines.
