Description:
In this inversion of the slider-crank the slider guide link is made to rotate. This is called a quick-return mechanism. This linkage also converts rotary motion of the crank into oscillatory angular motion of the slider guide link. This mechanism is sometimes used in shaper machine tools for cutting metals. Joseph Whitworth was a 19th century British engineer and inventor.
