Motorcycle Shed Turntable Answered
Im making a log cabin in my back garden, im short for space so its 16ft wide and 10ft deep. I dont want to reverse the bike out of the shed each time so im going to make a turntable, id like it to be electric but I dont know how.
Here are the engineering plans for the turntable, dont worry about how im getting the 50mm circle in the concrete, im doing that with a polythene plug.
Im going to use the largest "Lazy Susan 24" to hold and turn the middle of the table, then im going to use min i fixed casters to keep the edges stable.
Im an engineer so I can maipulate any metal on my lathe/mill etc. Ive thought of 2 ways to use the winch to turn the table:
1- Bellow the table: exchanging the wire for a pulley system which will turn the lazy susan, im not eqactly sure how this will work.
2- Above the table, Very easy, exchange the wire for a rubber wheel that will turn the edge of the table.
Question: If anyone can think of any better, easier ideas id love to hear from you?
