The compact long stroke mechanism converts rotation motion to a reciprocating motion without using a crank mechanism. By using a laser cutting this mechanism can be manufactured very easily.

How Compact Long Stroke Mechanism Works!

What you see in the video below is a mechanism that can be used to pump water from a well by using a wind turbine. Since the horizontal axis wind turbines changes their rotation direction depending on wind direction, the reciprocation mechanism must pass from the center of this rotation.

Unlike a crank and slider mechanism, the current design not swing sliding arm. Notice that the green arm only moves up and down, not side wise. This makes centering the rotation of the turbine around the sliding green arm easier.
