What you are about to see is something I haven't actually made out of PVC yet..
That's the beauty of this lesson here.
I will guide you with skematics.
Then you'll design a method to mount the actuator motors you custom ordered online.
Good this exercise will make you less stupid.
I will provide specific important information so you don't screw up and waste material. When it is complete you will have created a 2 axis full range device that can focus the suns energy into parabolic mirrors or solar pannels. Dont screw this up!!
