      Does anyone know where I can get the following and what it would be called?
      One-way rotation mechanism
      Has detents or stops at specified intervals (like every 90 degrees)
      Fairly small - something that an approximate 2" diameter wheel or circular piece of metal could be attached to
      Doesn't require a lot of force to move it out of the stop position + begin rotation again

      sounds like a ratchet and pawl? (if you are ok with many 'positions' and very low force to move)

      Otherwise, you can probably find a one-way clutch with detents
