I have been throwing around the idea of doing this for a while now and I am trying to figure out the best way to do it, which is under 100 dollars. I recently purchased a hand-held Vac from Goodwill for the project. It is a hand-held Dirt Devil that plugs into the wall, with 5amps/600 watts. Do you think this is enough? It does seem to have some balls for a hand-held, it actually torques in you hand when you turn it on. Do you think that this will be enough power? After all, it does say on the box, "The power of an upright in the palm of your hand!"
If anyone has ideas or tips about a DIY turntable, throw them in, I need all the help I can get.
