Combinations of the inverted slider-crank linkage (i.e., the Whitworth quick-return mechanism) with another of the same sort, with a scotch-yoke mechanism or with a planetary gear, are able to produce excellent function generators having a stationary value of velocity ratio. Various forms are discussed, and graphs of their characteristic motions are shown.
