servo travel

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 3:56pm 1 Comment

I would like to use servos to move bucky hands side to side on piano keys.  It is about 3' of travel and the hands are mounted on wheeled trolleys.  I looked at an XY table, and it has the desired movement, but I cannot figure out how to get my servo to move the wanted distance without a giant pulley?

Increased servo travel

Anyone have information for using a hobby servo to move a belt 3'?
