Hi everyone. I am looking for help with a prop I am making at the moment. It is a small hand operated morse code/telegraph machine. My question is how to make the unit move up and down in a random way, to simulate the original action, as discreetly as possible. My initial thinking was to connect the wooden finger plate to a small 12v push/pull solenoid I have and connect to a 12v supply. I have used the old tried and tested fluorescent strip light starter motor for my 240v props, to give a random effect with my lights, but cannot think of an alternative for 12v. Any ideas?
