My as of last week fiancé loves jukeboxes. Having just bought a ring that isnt something i can afford right now and thought I would build her an imitation using some arduino gear I just got to learn on for a craft/art project I have planned.
I want to make a changer that emulates the style of the video. Probably to randomly change records with mp3 player album change or something.
I will likely make it all out of very cheap light materials like cds for records and cardstock/wire for the trays that rotate which ill paint metalic. So it isnt full size.
There are two vertical movements that need to happen one for the hook that rotates a record and the other for the spinning record tray. The record tray would be heaviest part if i make it by moving an entire stepper motor (to turn the record)up and down.
The shift in height will be about 100-120mm thanks to the miniature sizing.
I havnt played with stepper motors so I guess my question is of speed. I dont need the accuracy of printers or cnc. If I made a platform with threaded rod for movement whats the cheapest I can get away with for my two vertical shifts while keeping to the speed (of a record change cycle)of the jukebox in video.
A 28BYJ-48 should be enough for the spinning record as I dont care if its at real speed or not more the impression of movement that matters but for the rest I wasnt sure.
Any suggestions? Feel free to suggest better methods of doing any of the mechanics for that matter
