This looks great! Where do you get the platform and the ball bearings?

Platform and bearings are Makerbeam stuff

I used the IKEA cooking timer for years :) The only downsides were that I couldn't control speed and couldn't make more than 1 full rotation...

Speed and number of rotations with the IKEA egg timer can be controlled with two or three printed cogwheels. It cannot accelerate and decelerate like your rotating platform.

Ah, OK, didn't know. Have to try :)

So do I. First I need to purchase the IKEA egg timer. and then I have to design the cogwheels.
