Friction disk variator 2

Input: the orange shaft carrying a friction disk.

Turn the yellow screw to move the pink roller for changing velocity of the blue output shaft carrying a friction disk.

Velocity of the output shaft depends on contact position of the roller with the disks.

The two disks are forced toward the roller by red springs. Input and output shafts are parallel.
