I´ve searched hi and low, for months, but can´t seem to find slip rings anywhere suitable for small motors and electronics. Anybody here who has any suppliers in hand ?

This unit was mentioned somewhere recently - lots of connections, can be paralleled up for more current...

there are a lot of entries for "slip ring" on eBay.

Please don't PM for technical advice. Firstly my advice is sometimes wrong, and second, in the forum you get a broader, more timely, range of responses.

For light-duty stuff, 3.5mm or quarter-inch jacks can be useful.

Could you explain that one please?- maybe a sketch or photo?

Well a 1/4" stereo phone plug and jack would give you three circuit connections that is free to rotate when plugged into it's matching jack.

OMG! What a fantastic idea!

You can also get three and four pole 3.5mm jacks and 2.5mm three pole.

And four poles could allow you to pass power, ground, and a full duplex comm link through the rotating and fixed assemblies. What more could a rotating project require.  ;)

I've also heard of people using those phone cable untangler things for this purpose too.
