Hello,I apologize if this is not the right forum, please direct me if it is not. I stumbled onto this forum and I hope that you are the right people to ask this question. I am looking to create something that can rotate/pivot a load of about 120-200 lbs on a pivot of perhaps 3-4" diameter and would need help in finding/fabricating some kind of motorized kit for this. The speed setting need not be elaborate or super precise, a potentiometer will do.
Unlike most of the projects here, my project would probably be considered crude (but perhaps more of a challenge due to the changeable and variable nature of the load), not that a range of numbers could not be determined (though I have forgotten how to even start to calculate them now).This is a device that I am trying to construct that will merely turn or pivot a human from above. So, the load while a constant weight, would probably still be perceived by the motor as dynamic since humans cannot stay perfectly still and balanced.
