I'm having difficulty matching the motor and rubber band - hoping you found same and have some advice here. The first motor I tried was a small high rpm hobby type and it wasn't powerful enough in the end to wind the spider down against the force of the rubber band.
I've now re-assembled it with a DC motor scavenged from a printer and I'm having the opposite - the motor is strong enough to wind the spider down, then keep winding until it comes back up again. Even when I've pre-wound the rubber band some, the motor always wins.
I'm thinking of putting a potentiometer in the circuit to limit the voltage to the motor, but with time against me hoping you have some advice that can help.
Thanks ! Geoff
Pick up easy items such as marinated olives or unique veggies and dress them up by serving them on a nice platter.
