Abstract : The patent relates to a device for converting the output of a fluid amplifier into rotational mechanical energy. Teeth are arranged upon both ends of a short piston as well as both ends of its cylinder. An oscillatory motion is imparted to the piston by rapidly switching the output of a fluid amplifier from one end of the piston to the other. Upon oscillation, for engagement of the piston and cylinder teeth will cause the piston to rotate.
