The round top platform lifts off revealing the motorized base, gears, and battery compartment as
shown below. All three sizes of the turntables share the same
motorized base, only the round top platform is different. You
could paint or cover the platform with any other material. All units
use a standard "D" 1.5 volt battery. A small switch near the bottom
of the base turns the unit on and off. The large white gear can be moved
to the nearby post to change the speed from slow to fast.
