Day 363

The Dailylife Daughter #1 makes decorated tumblers.  She asked me to make a turner, so I did and gave it to her for Christmas…but I didn’t take any photos of it!  So these are all the DD#1’s.

Basically it is a shaft on a motor (with a blazing speed of 3.5 to 5 RPM!) set in a support.

I got the motors on Amazon, and a brass coupler that goes on the motor shaft.  I connected PVC end caps to the couplers.  The PVC shafts are just held in with friction.  DD#1 put the footballs on,  The tumblers are squeezed over the footballs to hold them in place.

Then they turn to allow the decorating activities and proper, even drying (as I gather it…).

And with a tumbler:

And other than watching a couple of Youtube video on people making them, this was my plan for the thing:
