Default LASER SPIROGRAPHS

I build and sell laser spirographs. look at my posts for them if your interested. heres the pricing
the two motors i use are cooling fans, quieter and better also last longer.
2X motors @ 12.99 each comes to roughly 26 bucks
2X battery holders @ 1.79 each comes in at roughly 3.50
1x potentiometer @ 4.79 comes to roughly 5 bucks
foam board is about 2 bucks
mirrors are roughly 1.50

*if anyones wondering about the size its 9in length, 3.5in width and 2.5in height. its very portable, the lid stays closed with a magnet.

The total cost for the build comes in just under 40 bucks. i sell them for that same price so im not really profeting (maybe 1 or 2 dollars) i just charge the cost of the materials. let me know if your interested.

You can get cheaper motors, you do not have to use fans-- small motors that you can find in all kinds of toys

Why do you you use only 1 Pot when you have 2 motors... :-?

Are all the parts Brand New or are you using some salvaged parts... :-?

i know i dont have to use them but i dont like other motors its harder to mount the mirrors and the fans are a lot quieter. this thing doesnt give off more than a small whisper.

Well what the pot does is it also acts as a switch, so i turn it to click and it turns on the first motor, the first motor is always at a constant speed. when i turn the pot more it controls the other motor. i dont think two pots are nessecary but if your ever interested in buying ill make one with 2 if youde like. also the parts are all BRAND NEW i hate using old parts that i found lying around. i bought everything after i sold my 50 mW to my friend for 45 bucks

Personally, I think the fans are a waste for what they do--you can get really cheap ones from DX or somewhere-- $13 for a motor is a bit excessive. IF you use cheaper motors, you can sell them easily and maybe make some profit

Two pots are necessary, it doubles the number of patterns.

the only problem with dx is that your orders will take a while to fulfill. if you want me to use dx motors for your spirograph than instead of 26 bucks for the two fans send me 5 bucks for the dx fans. but it will take probably 3 extra weeks. or if i get enough offers ill order a bunch of fans in bulk maybe like 10-15 and do it that way. but its easier these fans are very good quality and i can buy them locally.

If the motors are 1x1 than just go to a local radioshack and buy a small project box they're really nice for these builds
