We built an mdf platform to sit on, it can be mounted onto the hub. We are also thinking about putting a spring system for interrupted rotational motion.

The brake mechanism is controlled by the know at the top that moves a nut up and down a threaded screw. That adjusts the tension in the springs.

Repurposed clamp brake, we are going to reuse the components to create a clamping mechanism that can control the flow of material going through a tube.
