comment Can anyone help me identify the motor/mechanism used in this?
It did turn out to be a 9V motor, thanks! I've now built the structure itself (everything in this image: brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=4299452 ), and now I'm not too sure about whether or not the arm's weight is enough to make it close itself, since even after trying to loosen it up a bit, it definitely doesn't seem to be able to close itself. The arm reaches out and shuts the machine down just fine- it just doesn't retract. I'd rather not add weights to it, or anything like that, and now I'm curious as to how he got it to work...
