I got a 12V cordless drill for my turret rotation; it was 
on sale for 15 bucks. Variable speed, fwd & reverse, comes with 
a battery and a charger, most excellent. I took it all apart
and am in the process of connecting a servo to the potentiometer,
or whatever that thing is that controls the motor speed, but
it's pretty cheap quality and I'd like to upgrade that part to
something a little more durable.  Anybody ever had this
challenge before?
