me again . Been thinking about this non stop, and have some more ideas.
I ordered the motor for it here. I think that should give enough power . Going to try to use a single rubber wheel in the middle, riding on a thin rubber sheet to move the whole unit. I think with enough torque and a slow enough speed, it should work. if not some sort of gear/rack system will be needed.
it's going to be controlled somehow by a series of latching relays and micro switches.
alright..here's my crappy drawing.
Green is the LCD, red is the moving unit, with the orange gearbox inside, black wheel, on the outside are the tracks (something similar to a drawer slider, with ball bearings).
Its going to take some work to get the angles correct to lift the LCD, and also to see if the motor/gearbox will want to roll when no power is applied, if so some sort of locking device will be needed.
any input guys?
