for DVD Mode) to set Date and Time.

IRPropClock urc7800


Assembler Version Below:


The clock spins using a belt system made from junkbox VCR parts.
I made a slipring to get the 5V supply voltage to the prop board
using a modified video head assembly.    5V supply and motor
speed controller on same board, center below main pulley.
Bottom left shows speed pot and Time Set and Mode Set switches.
(some day, i'll get hi-res photos) sorry.


The programmer I used was based on a design by Bob Blick.
