timer 101:
- create an instance of System.Windows.Forms.Timer
- set its Interval in milliseconds
- give it a Tick handler (a method that "Handles ...Tick"
- launch it by calling its Start method
- DONE: the tick handler will be executed periodically until you explicitly stop the timer.

Yes, the .NET timers are "free running" by default: once started, they keep "ticking" until you stop them. And you can change their Interval any time you like, in case you want the wheels to slow down.

any delay you want is built in the timer, that is what the Interval property is for (e.g. for your alarm clock, the Interval would be 24 hours).

What you need is a "state variable", i.e. one or more data items that know how far your machine has moved. Say you start the timer inside the SpinButton_Click handler, and set a variable "digit" to 0.

Now inside the timer's Tick Handler, you increment "digit" (up to its maximum value, then reset it to zero), and order a repaint of your Form (or a reload of an image in a PictureBox), where the new content depends on "digit". That will make the wheels spin, until you decide it was enough, so you probably need a random number "maxTicks", and after maxTicks ticks of the timer, you stop the timer, and hence the wheels.
