  1. Nov 16, 2009 #1
    Dear pros,

    I need to rotate a 340cm long metallic cylinder , on this cylinder i have two other cylinders welded with a 90degree angle(50 kg each cylinder) so the whole thing will look like that : TT

    Any ideas?

    Thank You

    Rotate in which direction? How fast? Is this related to your recent car turntable question thread?

    No has nothing to do with the turntable thing :)

    i attached two photos i hope they can show the movement !

    the rotation should be slow, and in one direction!
