When the operator pushes the handle 38 into the hous

1), movable rack 27 will move in one direction “A” (to
the right in ‘FIGS. 1, 2 and 4). During this movement
the movable rack 27 will cause the pinions 21 to rotate
in the direction “C” (counterclockwise in FIG. 4); due to
the meshing engagement of the pinions 21 not only with
the movable rack 27 but also with the ?xed rack 23, the
pinions 21 will not only rotate each about its axis but
also move linearly in the same one direction “A” (to
