Do it yourself rotisserie motor deer deterrent

I discovered this week that a low end rotisserie motor matched up with a large hex key can equal enough deer deterrent noise and movement to keep those sweet potato leaf munchers away.

The noise interval is decreased down to a frequency of 1 hit every 25 seconds, which I think works better than the more constant banging approach I've taken in the past.

Two rotisserie motors hacked up in this manner might be even more effective by allowing for an easy way to adjust the timing. You could simply turn one off for a few seconds and then back on to keep even the most confident deer guessing and on his toes running away from your garden.
