      Hi everyone,

      I am an Industrial Design student working on a robotics project and have run into a bit of a wall whilst designing one of my components.

      I am building a turntable that has an inner suction cup that rotates independently within a work surface. The suction cup will be attached to a continuously rotating servo via a shaft, so the problem I am facing is that I need to run a hose to the suction cup up through the shaft, and the hose cannot become tangled while the shaft is rotating.

      So basically what I am looking for is a hollow shaft with an independently rotating nipple that I can run a hose to. Is there anyone here that has seen such a thing, or know of a better option?

      Thanks so much,

      Sean Davidson
