By request here are the formulas:

- Minimum length of the second arm -
y = x + 2
Where y is the length of the second arm and x is the length of the first arm.

- Travel Distance (Stroke Length) -
y = 2x - 1
Where y is the travelling distance and x is the length of the first arm

- Length of the first arm (stroke length rearranged) -
x = (y +1) / 2
Where y is the travelling distance and x is the length of the first arm
