DIY paper beltdrive design/build Answered
I'm looking for examples of home-made paper feed / belt drive mechanism - not having any success! Hoping maybe someone has seen or done something similar that I can learn from.
The idea is that I have a loop of paper that needs to scroll continuously past a window. The gadget has to fit inside a shoebox (roughly), so I'm not about to take apart some old printers, an old movie projector or a belt sander.
Seems to me I need a small motor and some rubber spindles/rollers mounted to a frame. Not so different to a belt sander. But much lower RPM, and HP!
So, have you seen any designs that resemble this sort of thing? A DIY belt drive that will run off AA/9v batteries?
