YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD lemonade!I'mbadash, it was easy. Used a reindeer motor, drilled a hole in the pan, attached with screws. It took a while to sync the position of the arm with the movement to make it stay right, but then I am a 65 year old woman, thus most things take me longer. You should definitely try. Thanks.
I don't have any way to make a video, but it is quite simple. I attached a rod and a cup (the top of a fabric softener bottle) to a reindeer motor (bolted to the bottom of the pan) which travels in a circular path. The cotton candy stick sits in the cup, the stick is wired to his hand, thus moving around. I am technically challenged, but not mechanically.How about a video to show the action?
