Greetings all, My project has a "time machine" (H.G.Wells) for the robot(Steam Punk) to use and I would like it to engage levers to activate it. These will turn on plasma lights and a revolving day month, and year. Its a mechanical(an old copper gasoline gallon indicator). Now here's the question:
How can I create a mechanical sound to simulate speed, much like a jet engine? I know I will use a high rpm dc motor and attach the shaft to a..................
I could use a speaker but the mechanical device would be a more realistic sound. Suggestions would be greatly appeciated. The maximum height for it to fit into the "time machine" is 2.5 inches.
I know everyone is concentrating on their own projects and any suggestions however weird would be awesome.!

required. You could supplement that with a pager/phone vibrating motor.
Our just us a motor with something attached to spin against like a card in spokes
Sorry that's all I got.
That's all I got.
Look at this web site:
Look in the "Space Craft" section:
There are lots of cool whoring sounds to choose from. Take your pick and if needed do a little cutting and editing with Audacity software. Free Download:
Best regards, Glen
can you post your email i have a idea for you.
also need any parts for your robots you know they are free to my friends,
I too have been scouring the internet trying to find you a sound to use. I have been looking for a particular sound effect from one of the old Star Trek episodes. The one called "What are Little Girls Made Of" where Capt. Kirk is placed on a spinning table and it makes an android duplicate of him. The sound effect for the conversion process is really cool. Although, I can not find a clip of just the sound effect by itself. However, I am not sure if it would be good for what you are looking for because it is not really a whirring noise. I will continue on my quest to help you....maybe the links Dave gave you will work out. Audacity is a really neat program to work with....anyway good luck.
