The Geared Scotch Yoke is an Essential Mechanism, build it as an exercise in pure mechanism or as the starting point for your own character based paper animations. “What character based paper animations?” I hear you ask. As an answer, I’ve collected together a few ideas and put them into a Mini-Zine for you to download and make. If you’ve bought the Geared Scotch Yoke already, please check back, you will find the zine file in your downloads tab.

This instagram video shows how it is put together or check the cam zine here for step by step instructions
