      If your 15cm rail is in a fixed position you could just use a linkage with 2 racetracks cut into it. Then a force applied in the center of the new link would move it to final position. If the force applied not fixed in direction (ie. by hand) then a guide needs to be installed in the center of the new part to constrain the motion of the link to a perpendicular direction to the 15 cm link. Alternatively stops can be placed on the rails to stop the motion of the sliders at their fully extended position.

      This is the first topic I've made on this site, and I am very impressed by the ideas, friendly nature and different perspectives. Thank you all so much. My linkage has really moved on and I'm now in the stage of hand made samples to test it all out.
