Or the real nice solution. Mod a calculator and hook it up with a microswitch. This will allow you to count quarters or whatever you want to divide the revolutions into.

Note that I did not exclude this.

It was the sort of thing I was thinking of by mentioning time instead of money invested in the counter. Time for DIY construction!

Well, it takes like 15 min. to make such a thing. That's less than it takes to order one

If your into the electronics, you can also build an up/down counter. If you make a Mistake, it can Un-count those turns.

There is a Fairly Simple, 4 digit counter on my Website.

Look at the Up/Down Counter Project

Take care.......Gary
