      If you do an interrupted rack you need to have some sort of cam/lever lockout mechanism to make sure there is no collision as the pinion re-engages. otherwise your mechanism WILL destroy itself.

      Thanks guys for all the suggestions. A decision was made this week and they want to go for the half pinion driving an upper and lower rack. If you wish to see an anination go to http://www.robives.com/mechanisms/recip and look under reciprocation motion.
      Sorry its has taken me so long to respond but I was working on other aspects of the design and the client wasn't in hurry.
      Kind Regards
      Sam
