A project log for Aquarium controller / home automation

I am building an automated aquarium controller to fit into my home automation system.

Hi people.

I have come up with this (half) idea for the fish feeder (cribbed from other people).

I need to come up with some way of attaching the drill bit to the motor blade.

I got these bits and pieces with the motor...

... so I am hoping that I can attach one of these bits to the drill bit.


I think an idea may be to put the drill bit through the width of a plastic cereal box.

It is a bit of a rubbish idea as, an electronics-guy I am but, DIY-guy I am not.

Maybe I should use the spring and plastic tube idea instead. I am totally lost. :¬(

Thanx Peter, a very interesting little machine with a lot of scope. You are indeed a very talented man to be able to do these things. Thanx very much for sharing. Happy Christmas :)

The Precision Micro Seeder Metering Head on was designed to meter poppy seeds, will move fish food too with a slightly larger auger.
