Now that we have some strips of plastic they will need to be cut to useful sizes. I am using some thin plastic so I cut them easly with light duty tin snips (we keep a pair in the kitchen). I based the lengths roughly on the paper model.
Here is the cut-list -
- the peice that the motor mounts to is about 3.25" X 1.25"
- the two side peices are about 4"X 0.75"
Then you need to drill some holes.
The motor I am using is from a printer/scanner. It has a gear already on it that is 10mm wide. It also has 2 mounting holoes that are spaced 20mm apart.
