Interlux Waterfront Challenge Project & Loco Drive Wheels

As the Sea Scouts move forward with their project to make improvements at marina oil recycling stations we look to design a hand operated used oil filter crusher using a bottle jack.  The request was how could we convert the up and down pumping action required to move the piston on a bottle jack into a wheel action?  The Sea Scout brains trust came up with several suggestions but the one that caught everyone's attention related to a model train locomotive. Take a look at the drive wheels and how they connect to the steam piston. Could we not use this same design principle?
