Wind-up motor for a blower
I have this idea for a desktop toy which needs a blower. I could just use an electric blower, but I'd rather make a wind-up motor instead. I'd like the blower to spin pretty fast, to make enough air pressure to give the effect I'm looking for, but I don't want it to conk out after ten seconds, three to five minutes would be acceptable. I was thinking I could salvage the parts from something like an antique wind-up record player or phonograph (because they run pretty long), but I'm on a tight budget and I'd rather not destroy something that cool already. Please, any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
I'll post an instructable of my final product (if it ever gets done!)
