Description:
This model is in essence a four-bar mechanism with a parallelogram or 'pantagraph' copying extension not unlike the Watt steam engine straight-line mechanism. The Voigt catalog calls this mechanism an 'Ellipse linkage with stork's bill', (Storchschnabel, in German) This description is not clear since the four-bar is not an exact ellipse drawing mechanism. The 'stork's bill may refer to Model S-36 which also has a parallelogram extension and looks like a pecking bird in motion.
