    Ratchet and pawl motion study

    Fergus McPhillimy

      I'm designing a ratchet and pawl mechanism and making a motion study. When in motion, I only want the ratchet wheel to turn one direction. Unfortunately, it has a tendancy to be dragged very slightly in the other direction by the pawl moving along each edge. How do i constrain the ratchet wheel to only move in one direction? Thanks a lot.
