Spin Any Turntable

Revolver is a friction-drive machine capable of spinning any turntable platform with a circular edge. Bolt it to the floor and press it into the edge of your existing turntable to instantly motorize your revolve.


Perfect for Les Mis, The Wizard of Oz, or your donut turntable musical featuring one of America’s founding fathers.

Flexible

Revolver can integrate with most turntables. Lag it directly to the floor, or use the frame flanges to attach it to your turntable sub-frame. Wheels up, or wheels down, no problem. At less than 8 1/4″ high it fits snugly under you show deck or incorporates into your scenery.


Position the drive wheel on the outside edge and easily add it after the show deck is in place. Or position it under the turntable itself and let the platform spin above it. The Revolver is less than 9 inches high so the choice is yours.

Fast

Revolver has a maximum rim speed of 36″/second (2.9 rpm on a 20′ revolve). Using a Stagehand Apprentice, Revolver can be over-sped to achieve a maximum speed of 72″/second.


With proper tensioning, Revolver can keep moving as performers step on and off (or even dance) on the platform.

Powerful

With a 5hp motor and independent tensioning springs, Revolver can produce up 1200lbs of lateral thrust to effortlessly spin turntables loaded with tons of scenery.


Rotate thousands of pound of scenery, LED screens, or periaktoi effortlessly. Revolver is perfect for traditional theatrical performances or touring concerts and productions.

Forgiving

The motor and drive wheel ride on a spring-loaded suspension to compensate for not-quite-round turntables. The positioning encoder is mounted on an independent suspension so you never lose accuracy, even if the drive wheel slips.


Never worry about wrapping the edge of the turntable with chain or wire rope. Those things can slip and are a pain to install.


The Revolver’s drive wheel can move any decently framed platform with proper setting of its tensioning springs.
