Description:
This model is an example of a four link kinematic chain in which two of the links, ‘a’ and ‘c’, in the photo can slide in their respective guides, ‘b’, ‘d’. In the model shown, link ‘a’ is fixed and ‘b’ moves horizontally back and forth. Unlike the double-slider mechanism of models D-8, D-9, D-10, in which the slots are at a fixed angle of ninety degrees, in models K-1, K-2, the angle between the two guide slots changes as the links move relative to one another. Also, Reuleaux uses the adjective ‘crossed’ to indicate that for the link ‘b’ the sliding axis and the rotation axis are perpendicular and do not intersect in contrast to the similar constraints of the normal double slider, D-8.
