Mechanism for converting two-way to one-way rotation 5

The blue input gear may change rotation direction but the rotation direction of the green output shaft keeps unchanged. The yellow gear rotates idly on the blue shaft. The orange rings represent thrust bearings.

The pink shaft moves longitudinally when the input reverses because of axial component of gear forces.

There is a slight lag during the input shaft’s reverse.

The mechanism should be used only for low speed case because of gear collision.
