DIY Light Timer

I posted in another forum, but think it belongs here. Does anyone have a link to the thread where a guy modified a standard light timer to go on and off every minute or so?

Are you saying just to put more switches on the dial? I don't think you could get them to time it to one to two minutes. There was a guy on here who took it apart and used different gears to make it rotate faster...i lost the thread though

I think you mean this DIY wavemaker... I have been using one for a couple years now on a couple modded MJ pumps.
