Retro "DUA-L-VEE" Linear Guide Wheel Demo

A little New Year cleaning in storage uncovered a vintage DualVee® guide wheel and track demo! Did it work when we plugged it in? You bet! Our look may have changed, but not our standard of quality.

Enjoy this retro find!

  3. I think I would have put a 0-360 dial on the wheel, and scales on the two linear axis and call it a "Mechanical Sine/Cosine calculator".

  4. Looking at your video gave me the rotary solution I was looking for. As A non-engineer I wish I had this "motion encyclopedia" mounted above my desk!
