Homemade Cable Cam Mark 2

Here we go with version 2 of my homemade cable cam.

I’ve swapped the chain guide rollers for some 80mm diameter nylon pulleys, and upped the battery power to 12volts in an effort to make her go faster. It’s also primed to have the pan and tilt servos mounted soon. Most of the bits were from a skip, some off cuts of aluminium and a cannabalised old machine from a computer company bin.

She’s nearly up to speed, just has a few issues. Below is a quick shady boring first test outside the office.
