CXS powered rotating platform
« on: November 07, 2017, 01:50 PM »
Slapped this together today, but why??  [censored]



It's powered by my CXS and angle attachment, with a tie-strip around the trigger, it's powered on and off by inserting the battery. Drew the gears with a plug-in in sketchup and cut them out with the X-carve. It managed to spin something over 100kg.
The drill is just loose in there, the box edges prevent it from spinning.

Nope, I would have made that hand powered, in this case I couldn't be near when it was operating...

It would be a good rotating platform for completed pieces during a video compilation. Or to display an open systainer, if one wanted to display the amazingness inside.

It appears the gear ratio is 8:48, or 1:6, and the CXS is in 1st gear, or 0-400 RPM, so the 100kg (220 lb) object will spin at up to 66 RPM (somebody check my math).

Does this help?

I didn't use the CXS at full speed, that would have spun the object way too fast. I used the tie-strip to make it run at minimal speed.
It was actually for a video presentation of the thing in my avatar...

@Timtool

Now come on son, you've got to give us more than that.  The community has been waiting for another Timtool creation.

Spill the beans.....

I'm trying to get everything ready to release by the weekend, been working on this for 3 years now. The funny thing is that I cut out the footage shot with this rotating table in the final edit... it didn't feel necessary.
