I was excited to see Gabrial post up a sun tracking setup by Nova Solar that is using a friction drive & encoder.
This setup and look is exactly what I'm shooting for so I'm very interested in learning all I can about friction drives and how they work since they may be a better choice than the 12v motors & worm gear drives I'm working with now.
Has anybody else tried using or building a Friction drive before?
Dave with Nova Solar if your out there please chime in if your free! Your set up looks awesome. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7XcM5PrM53-TaQteqd8_jQ/about
