I would like to create a mechanism that moves a stage in a two way linear motion that repeats where the driving force is a continuous unidirectional rotational motion. In this I am reminded of a fishing reel mechanism. I don't know what this mechanism is called nor if it can be purchased as an assembly. Does anyone have any information about such a mechanism?

It might be called a "level wind mechanism."
