Stereo vol. control made in wood shop
After buying a new remote for my stereo, and it didn't work, I went out to the shop, and made a volume control, as shown in picture. (not painted black yet)
It uses a 12 volt, dc gear motor, from a holiday light, display.
Waiting for the dpdt, rocker switch to come, so I can wire it up. Didn't say it was wireless! If anyone knows of a compact wireless transmitter and receiver, that would reverse the polarity of the motor wires, let me know.
It was a quick project. Cut disc outside line on bs. Put 1/4" bolt and nut on it, and used a rasp to true it up, and a rattail file to put a groove in it for the rubber band.
Cut the semi circle in the mount to rough shape on bs. Real rough, with a 1/2" blade! Approx 1" radius! A few seconds on the oss, made it perfect.
Screwed the motor to mount, and mount to a base of 1/4" ply.
The oss, saves so much time on something like this. I could have changed bs blades, and cut on the line, but then have to change blade back.
