You know when a guy tackle a project like this, you cannot have to many friend. Neighbor is a sheetmetal worker and made me a door. Brother is electrical contractor gave me the motor. I would like to thank Dead Coyote for his pics and post. So with that bring said I had to buy 2 lovejoy couplers $20, 2 pillow bearngs $17, piano hinge $6, one bag of sheet metal screws $10. Total $53. I wrapped it with fiberglass milkhouse panels that I had laying around here. Now I just have to clean the panels.

Sorry to disappoint you but 35 rpm is about 3 times to fast. Mine looks to be about the same dimensions and turns 11 rpm, which is marginal. Wouldn't hurt if it was a bit slower.

Yup I think its to fast, should put a window in them so you can see if they fall/drop or just ride around. Jim
