Pumping is movement of a piece along the axis of rotation (the Z axis).
Examples of this device in use
- This YouTube video, Ornamental Turning with the Lindow White Rose Engine Side Pumping, shows pumping.
- The second YouTube video, Pump cutting on the MDF Rose Engine, shows pumping on an MDF Rose Engine (which Pat Miller made). This is a very innovative approach that Pat made, using the rosette designed to move the object in a rocking motion, and converting that motion into a pumping action.
- The third YouTube video, Dan Henry - Pumping Mechanisms, was given at the OTI Symposium in Seattle Washington.
