It broke…I swear I had nothing to do with it…

That was uploaded during CD’s troubles yesterday so here it is again

Sorry if I missed it in a previous thread, but do you have any video of it working?

Only missed when 71 hit us.

Thanks for sharing the pic.

At QC, I noticed that as your shooter went through it’s cycle, there was a dramatic difference in speed between the 1st and 2nd half of the rotation. Is the speed/acceleration of the 1st half all motor or do you have some kind of stored energy (spring or air) contributing to it? I assume the slow return is for better positioning and easier reloading?

What happens is the shooter rotates at the speed needed to shoot and when it hits the first switch slows down dramatically. We did this so that when it hit the home switch it would stop in a more consistent position.

I don’t know what it is, but I sure want one :yikes:

It was really cool to see it in action. A very nicely designed device.
