Description:
Slotted yoke drive. This is an example of rotary motion being converted into straight line motion. So it is opposite to that of Boston model No. 12. [Virginia Downward & William Clark, 1930] [Editorís Note: This double-slider mechanism is similar to the Reuleaux-Viogt model D-8. Sometimes called a 'Skotch-yoke' mechanism, it transforms steady rotary motion into exact sinusoidal linear or straight-line motion in time. FCM]
