|These instructions describe the construction of a ubiquitous meccano model. The basic feature of this Meccanograph is two cams, one which controls the pen arm in the transverse (X) direction and the other in the longitudinal (Y) direction, enabling the pen to draw "figure of eight" patterns.
A ratchet mechanism under the designing table allows the machine to draw either continuous or intermittent patterns, and the Meccanograph can be motorised or hand-driven.

Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available. The level of instruction detail is dependent on the original modeller and varies from plan to plan. These are instructions only.
