Hi all!

I have been going a little crazy looking for a "Battery Operated Revolving cake Stand/Display" Something like the Karousel but it has to be able to rotate 40 lbs. I've searched high and low and only found one that would rotate up to 33 lbs. Does anyone know where I can find this???

Please help!

TIA

I have seen display revolvers but as you said only 20lbs . I think you need a revolving motor probably from hardware store.

hmmmm! Maybe I have to get my husband to make me one. I just thought since I've seen the cake designers on shows like challenge make spinning cakes (but I never really noticed what they used to get them to spin) that maybe there was some place you could get a heavy duty one especially for heavy cakes.

Well, if anyone else knows of any place, please do share and if not, I am going to start looking into the costs of building one (or having my husband build one...LOL) thumbs_up.gif

This is the only one I have seen so far which does not light up and too expensive.I also have been wondering where the guys on tv get them from.I thought they are just not available in the state of Maryland.I searched all crafts shops too.I at a time was even ready to settle for just the light-up stand but still no luck.Hope other cc'ers can help us.

these people could build you one: http://www.precisionturntables.com/turntable-services.html

but.....OUCH on the price

---

here's the same one as above about $20 cheaper and with battery option and remote control:

http://www.usaturntable.com/the-ultimate-cake-decorating-or-general-display-turntable.html

----

this company has ones rated to 750KG (about 15,000 lbs) http://www.mte-motors.de/e_displayantrieb_multi.html -- but it would be special order from Germany

-----

here's one from a theatrical supply company -- 300lb capacity
http://www.smartstage.com/Turntable_1.574.0.html

-----

of course the simplest option --

build it yourself.

heavy duty motor
rheostat (works like a dimmer switch to control the speed of the motor)
and whatever you want to use for a base.

it would be same principle as building your own audio turntable (plans all over the net)

would have to decide if want direct drive (shaft of motor directly attaches to the turntable base) or indirect drive (usually a belt drive)

Ok I know I am a few years too late but I came across this post via google while I was searching for one myself. So hope this post helps someone

http://www.alcrafteggartistry.com/TurnTables.html

That site offers really affordable rotating turntables including one that meets the OP's requirements for just $34.95 icon_smile.gif

i wish *any* of these links worked right now, lol. i'm constantly amazed at how these people on tv tend to screw up a simple motor system, as if it's this massively complex task. somewhere on the whole of the internet (or in your local handyman's storage) there's got to be a low speed, high torque electric motor that can handle a moderate load. i'm wondering what would happen if you used two lower capacity motors on a shaft system, if that would equal a higher rated motor? hm, if i bump into an engineer at work, i'll ask them and get back because now you've made me curious. icon_smile.gif
