What can I connect to a cylindrical CD case to make it spin? Answered
I need to make something that will feed my cats for one meal. I want to use one of those cylindrical CD cases that hold 50 or so CDs with a hole in the side to dispense kibble. I'll just be connecting the motor to a normal light timer. The only thing I don't know is how strong of a motor I would need to turn it with about 1/2 cup of cat food while it's on its side. I don't think a dinky clock motor would do it, any ideas where to scavenge something stronger? No, I don't really want to make the VCR feeder, too complex for what I need.
