I was looking around for one of these in blue print form. I jus couldn't wrap my mind around the mechanics of it. The video is more of a manual tumbler. Is there a way to smooth out the rotations and sync them more with you setup?
Im thinking of using a cordless drill to power the pannels but I have a question I tried the one I have and it wont trun the pannel and Im afraid to burn up the motor I know it is a cheap one but when buying a new one would I want one with more torque to turn it easier or more volts?
MAy I suggest a rotiserie motor? I am no expert on motors, but there are plenty out there at Harbor Freight, or even the local swap meet. They may run faster than you need, and will need some gear reduction.
