Record players, timers and an art project.

by severalrevolutionslater / March 19, 2007 7:58 AM PDT

Hi there! I'm a final year art student, and I've been tinkering with electronics and record players for the past while, but my ambition has overtaken my technical skill and I'm in need of help and advice.
This isn't strictly a home audio enquiry but I'll pass it by you anyway.
What I want to build is this: three turntables arranged in a triangle formation on separate tables. Their motion needs to be synchronised so that turntable no.1 will start spinning, spin for 30 seconds, stop. Immediately, turntable no.2 begins to turn for thirty seconds and the stop, and so on. This needs to be attached to mains power.
I have been told that I will need to buy a timer in order to do this, but that is all the information I have. Unfortunately there are no technicians with electrical knowledge at my uni.
So, if anyone thinks they can enlighten me, I would appreciate your help!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
