Building a hand-crank mechanism driven turntable
Hopefully one of you guys should be able to help me out with this!
What I want to build is a a kind of a large scale music box, (you know the ones where you would turn the wheel and the ballerina would spin?).
What I need to make is a hand cranked machanism which will turn light wooden disc. This should all be contained within a wooden box.
Would it be easier to build this from scratch or to rip an existing mechanism and re-house it?
