    Vagulus Dagg

      I am trying to create a rack and pinion assembly using a straight length of 1/2 inch simplex chain and a corresponding sprocket.

      All the tutorial material I can find deals with having a motorbike (or similar) chain move around two (or more) sprockets.  I wish to have rotation of the sprocket produce linear, lateral motion of the chain.  I can't figure out the necessary path(s) or how to connect the system.

       

      All assistance will be appreciated.
