Used windshield wiper motors are an inexpensive was to drive turning targets - if you're interested in automating yours.

We do it the Amish way. We start on the side, and then run around front. Works the same, only different.

dfleming,

First.....welcome to the forum!!! I am sure you will like it here.

That is a very novel idea. The price is very reasonable as well, even if you don't want one that turns. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Cool. I just built a similar PVC/wood fixed stand, but this will make a great next project. Thanks for the post.
