3/1/19 - Update - We have replaced the main drive arm with a new UHMW plastic unit for longer life and quieter operation!
Looking for a plug and play prop animation kit?
This Prop Turner is designed for smaller, lightweight props. If you are looking to turn life sized bodies or heavier props we suggest you use our larger CPT-2 kit that is powered by a wiper motor.
We designed this kit to provide a complete solution for building an animated prop requiring a back and forth motion. The machined aluminum parts provide a lightweight, rugged construction. It features a 110 volt 5-6 RPM AC gear motor that drives a low friction nylon roller for low noise and a long life. The turning assembly rides on a 3 inch swivel bearing that is rated at 200lbs of down force and the base accepts 1 inch PVC pipe for easy connection. The attached power cord is approx. 5 feet long. Mounting hardware is included.
This unit is designed to be mounted horizontally as shown.
The "spine" must be supported above the unit to prevent side loading of the bearing! Failure to do so will cause binding and eventual failure.
Keep the unit dry.
