How to make a model of the solar system rotate?
I need to make a model of the solar system, and I want to make it move. Any type of (inexpensive!!) motor or something that I could use to make it move, without it going too slow or too fast? Or possibly a manual type rotation? I also don’t want it to be too complicated, and it has to be able to move somewhat by itself after the initial force. Help please?
@ Sir caustic, it would not continue moving after my initial force.
Go to the nearest thrift store and see if you can pick up an old record player for $10.
The needle can be shot, no need for speakers… Just a nice smooth rotating motor and a table to put your “solar system” on.
Failing that, you could check the toy section of the same store and see if they have either an old “capsella” set, or maybe motorized lego / tinker-toys / erector-set…
Michaels.com has clock motors and foam balls, but my guess is you don;t want to do linkages…
