Introduction: Automated Spice Rack With Linear Actuators


We're excited to present this video on creating some of your own home automation. It's a simple, quick and inexpensive way to create a workable spice rack that saves you space.

This project can be completed in a few hours. For this project, we are using our PA-14-12-50 actuator at 50lbs of force and 12 inch stroke.

Did you find this video helpful? How would you do it differently if you built this project? Let us know in the comments. We'd love to hear from you.

Right next to the sink? Water will go in there

Thanks for the comment Wormdog84. We haven't had any problems with water yet. But as long as you have the room under your sink, you can move further back.

Looks simple enough to make, but I'd like to see a step-by-step.

Thanks for the comment alcurb. We'll be coming out with some more in-depth stuff in the future. This one will be updated, too.
