Re: [rsa] Need spinning table for project.
- how about an old turn table from a thrift/junk shop? 33/45/68 rpm settings, or you could probably replace that switch with a potentiometer/rheostat and have greater speed control. just glue whatever size platform you need to the platter, and remove the swing arm.
They are usually dirt cheap -
I need a table (perhaps 2 feet across) which can be controlled so
that it spins between 0 and 100 rpm.
It doesn't need to be very strong. I want to put lego figures on it
to make an animated show using a strobe light. (Each figure is
positioned slightly differently so the strobe light causes it to look
like the figures are moving.)
I'd be willing to pay $100 if someone can make me one. I'm hoping
it's a reasonably simple thing to do if you know how.
If you have a counter proposal then feel free to let me know. I don't
know how fast the table needs to spin to create the animation effect,
so I just chose 100 rpm arbitrarily. A smaller table might also be
acceptable if that's a problem.
