I am trying to make a simple dispenser without using any electricity. I just want to create a simple dispenser that dispenses flour with the turn of a knob. I am creating this because wherever I bake, I need so many different measuring cups for each item, so I want to make a dispenser that dispenses each item, but I will start with just flour. Since flour is usually used in cups, I will have the dispenser dispense flour in ¼ cups. Now to get into the problems, I have a design, but I dont know how to make it.
Everything has to be in the right size since I am having the measurement of ¼ cup, so the space in between the spinning disc must be equivalent to ¼ cup. The other issue is for this to work; the canister holding the flour must be just big enough for the spinning disc to fit inside, so that means I can’t buy it online. So my two most significant issues are how do I make the disc and how do I make the canister that would fit. If anybody can help, that would be much appreciated.
If anyone has any alternative designs or ideas, they are all welcomed. I also want to mention that I dont know how to do a lot of stuff since I am still in high school.
