Hello all. Currently I am trying to build a zoetrope, much like the one in this video, but at a larger scale. The "bucket" I buit is 24" in diameter, I'd like to have larger and more detailed frames for the zoetrope animation strips. But my snag is the crank, gears, and belt. I have no idea where to find suitable parts. I've seen some pulleys, and even some hand cranks for windows, but not really anything that I can imagine would benefit me. Any suggestions for parts to look for, or even a website to find parts?
My plan is to enter the zoetrope in an upcoming art show, an illustrate several strips that attendees could change out at their viewing leisure.
I think half my problem is that I'm an artist, and not much of a Maker as I'd like to be.
