Introduction: Repairing a Deer Feeder
The supplies I used was 3D printers to make parts for the casing like a leg that broke, mount for the motor, and a piece to sealing off a hole. Then used epoxy to put all the 3D printed parts on. I had to but a new motor and slinging plate because the original parts were broke. I used an ardunio and mosfet. I used a 1 million ohm resistor and wire with a 6v battery.
Step 1: The Broken Motor Case
Arm is broken and where the motor screws in is broken.
Step 2: Failed 3D Print Screw Holes Were to Far Apart
Step 3: The Working Plate
Plate is 3 inches in diameter.
Screw holes are .13 inches in diameter.
Center of the screw holes are 1.03 inches away from each other.
the center hole is .53 inches in diameter.
Step 4: Motor and Slinging Plate
The motor and plate is from Wild Game Innovations

Step 5: Before Mounting on the Motor Plate
Step 1: I had to cut the hole I used a hole saw
Step 2: drill holes so the epoxy can have something to grab onto
Step 3: use the epoxy
The hole is 2.143 inches in diameter
Step 6: The Plate Epoxied on
60% epoxy resin
40% epoxy harden
about 1 gram of silica thickener
Step 7: Arduino Holder
The width of the box is 2.087 inches
Length is 3.05 inches
Length of the inside of the box is 2.70 inches
Height of the box is .615 inches
Step 8: Deer Feeder Arm 3D Printed
The feeder arm broke when it fell so we epoxied it on there and used fiber glass cloth to add support to the arm
Step 9: The Wire Connected After Soldering
In channel mosfet, arduino, dc motor, battery adapter with mortification to go onto the 9v battery
Step 10: Arduino Code
This was a 12 hr program super simple.
I had to convert 12 hr into milliseconds which was 43,200,000
I have the motor on for 5 seconds
I used pin 13 to power my mosfet
Step 11: Hook It All Up It
After hooking it all up you are done fixing the feeder
