I am currently in the initial stages of design for a small (~8 ft dia.) rotating light platform that will be protected from direct contact with weather elements, however, this system must be very reliable with very minimal need for servicing/maintenance due to very restricted access conditions.
Any suggestions regarding best rotating platform bearings, gears, motors or any possible "pitfalls" to avoid would be greatly appreciated - including design references.
