I am looking for a rotating carousel or display, battery operated, variable speed. Answered
I have started paining glassware. I have an "artist's turnstyle" that has clamps to hold the glasses in place. The base turns, but manually turning it leaves a lot to be desired in the quality area. I thought about taking a Lazy Susan, adding rubber to the outer edge, and then place the Lazy Susan next to the turnstyle. I could continuously spin the Lazy Susan which would in turn turn the turnstyle. That might work for one or two glasses, but too many of them would cause callouses on my fingers, and the speed would vary. My son suggested his K'nex motor and make a motorized small wheel to mount next to the carousel. Sounds good, but does not have variable speed. My husband wants to take a small motor and control the speed with a foot pedal. That would require me to concentrate on the speed, not necessarily the painting. So I turn to the gadget makers for some suggestions or instructables.
