Table dolly

July 2, 2011

Some of you might remember my old motorized time lapse dolly (for you who don’t). This dolly was built with some random hard wood, legos and a motorized disco ball motor (3 RPM). This motor was then “geared down” to 0.18RPM with the help of lego gears.

The biggest problem this dolly had was that it needed 230v to be able to run, which isn’t the easiest thing to come by in the middle of the forest.

Anyway, I scrapped that dolly and rebuilt it as a simple table dolly. The reason for this is I’m planning a shoot with maggot that we’ll hopefully be able to pull of soon.

Enough of the talking, here’s a picture of the “beast” and a short demonstrating video. (The video might lag a bit, this is not because of the dollies motion, but because of the video player/flv file.)
