Just wanted to share after my post in the $20 dollar prop challenge.
All silver colored angle iron I got from a heating guy who was throwing it away. Garage door rails and wheels from garage doors, free from demo job.
Assorted metal screws, all-thread, nuts, bolts and washers, picked up from ground on different jodsites that others dropped, free.
Fishing line I took off of reel we got from wifes Grandpa after he passed away, free.
Bought a good motor from Graingers, did get the ghost for 1/2 off for $15 though. I am going to use a wiper motor for the lateral movement though, those Grainger motors are expensive!
Anyway, just thought I'd share a project I'm working on next year to help reach my 30 post in the next 8 days!!!
