Tools for measuring rpm (revolutions per minute) of a rotating device

Easiest Solutions

Bicycle Speedometer

You can also use a digital bicycle speedometer and do the math for the

diameter of your wheel.

When magnets are involved

When you have magnets involved in your rotating device, a magnet-based tachometer will most likely not work because the magnets in your system will drown out the magnet of the tachometer (e.g. in a bicycle speedometer).

Optical Tachometer kits

There are Optical Tachometer kits for $28, you might be able to get them

cheaper if you look around, or there may be a circuit diagram that it posted

to build it from scratch.

Here is the link to a kit..

Also I bought an optical tachometer on eBay for $50, so that is a source as

well.
