The paper describes the equivalent of Roberts’ law for Watt-1 mechanisms. It is shown that two floating links of the mechanism may be in turn generated by more than one mechanism of this type. Another investigation reveals that the Watt-1 six-bar (coupler-) curve of degree 14 will be produced by an infinite number of cognates of the same form.
