I had originally intended this to be a top-down view of a UFO, but somehow it ended up becoming a record player. How that happened, I'm not exactly sure, but I'm glad it did. I hope you all like it!

The name on written on it, Skimer, is supposed to be the manufacturer. The name just popped into my head and I thought it fit pretty well considering how record needles skim across the top of a record to play it. The 2 circles in the upper left corner are supposed to be knobs for adjusting the volume and RPM.

Wow, fail on my part XD Thanks for letting me know sm4tik, I'll go fix this, lol. Before I go, I would like to let you know that any custom modifications to this product will void any currently valid warranties with Skimer® and bar any future possible warranties regarding this product with our company. :P

I like this one. IMO, the knob/button thing is fine since you're the manufacturer afterall! There's one thing that bothers me though. Is there a switch for the playing direction somewhere, or should one just hack a switch for it? Just want to make sure before buying one of these, cause currently the record is playing backwards :P

 Thanks :D The name was meant to be spelled with 1 "M" simply because I didn't have room for 2 :P As for the RPM knob/button, I truly have no idea about that. Thanks for the comment and the compliment!

That's pretty cool!  The sense of turning is pretty good, and the needle going up an down looks like some kind of groovy music video.


Only suggestions: "Skimmer" has two Ms, unless you want to keep it that way, and I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that RPM is controlled with buttons instead of a knob.
