Rotating Display Turntables

These 2 speed rotating turntables are lightweight, and have a soft suede-like material on the turntable surface.  The platform lifts off to reveal the motorized base, gears, and battery compartment as shown.   All units use a standard "D" battery, which will operate the turntable continuously for up to two weeks.  A small switch near the bottom of the base turns the unit on and off.  The large white gear can be moved to the nearby post to change the speed from 4 RPM to 7 RPM.  (The slower RPM is recommended for gourd display.) The largest size can accomodate several small gourds.
