       Gambier bay               Show  1               Stan 2       

Hi Martin 
I'm working on the lift at the moment. Below the lift you have the following 
1 Electronic speed controller  to control  rate lift travels up/ down  running on 4.8 volts.
2 Large black object is a sound recorder  this has ding/ding sound on it.  So when lift is going up  or down you get the ding/ ding sound.
3 Speaker for the sound unit
4  Small amplifier to increase sound from the sound unit.
5 Small servo  with twin micro switches to turn on the power  to amplifier  and operate repeat on sound  recorder. Small geared motor  to raise lift. Lift is attached to a m/4 nut and treaded rod.
