Servo etcher

Since I like to fabricate my own PCB’s, it’s obvious that I etch a lot. For that purpose I’m using old CD container.

Thing that I hate is that the whole process is slow and ineffective. Thus I’ve decided to use one of the servo’s that was lying around. I’ve hot glued servo to the plastic cover of CD container. All I needed then was to program an Arduino, so it could change speed of servo with a values that comes of a potentiomer.
(Code I'm using is "Knob" from Arduino IDE Servo library)
