WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS--IDEA--ROTISSERIE
#1
I've been looking around for a used rotisserie for the last month or so..Haven't found anything except for junk..I started designing a wood one based on 2 I saw on one of the camaro forums http://www.nastyz28.com/forum/showthread.php?t=98675
http://www.nastyz28.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1683339
I had some discussions with another member here who also was looking for one & he turned me onto this http://www.rotokit.com/ I really like it & I'm going to buy it..My thoughts are that we could pass this unit around to the members here after each person is done.. The way I'm thinking this could work is each person would buy it from the previous person..so in essence you get a rotisserie for the cost of the wood..No big metal one to store after your done..& most of us only need this type of tool for our one time use...We could have a section on the board just for this & when the person is finished they post up "rotisserie available" What are your thoughts ?

Hey Scott... i saw the video and yes.. it is convincing... It shlould work just fine and for about 400 dollars new, it is not that investment...
I dont like to work with wood so, when something is on my mind, it is always in metal... This idea of a wood rotteserie would never come to my mind but now that i see it working, it is quite a good idea...

As you can imagine, here in Uruguay there are not rotteseries for sale at all... so, since a while ago, my father and I are building one in metal, using square section bars, and actually doing the point of rotation un ball bearings and that kind of stuff... We are half way done and i can tell you it is so overdimmesionated that we can lift a house in it!... jeje...

As funny as it is... when you build some structure without knowing what to expect, you always finish investing more money and building everything bigger and stronger than it should be...

Bottom line, even if your idea of buying this stuff with all the members there in the US. 400 dollars doesn´t seem to be a huge investment for this very usefull tool... The only thing I dont particulary like about this Rotokit Rotteserie is the fact that you cant move it arround if you need... it has no wheels that at least for me, it can be pretty useful if you need to move the car for any reason...

Let me know your choices!

I'm going to add wheels to it..Building & designing custom decks is one of the things I do for a living..I see no problem what so ever in using wood...Try breaking a 4x 6 anywhere along a 60" span..I'm sure you noticed the dolly I made that my car was on..all wood...and all scraps the only thing I bought was the wheels

Looking at it I see maybe 100.00 to 150.00...For me i have most of the wood laying around...I bet if you went to any deck building job site you could get most of it for free (scrap)

Actually I did and that surpriced me too.. didn´t know you worked with wood Tongue

Here in Uruguay working with wood is not that much cheaper than using metal... iron for instance so... i didn´t even think about the possibility of that...

But the video you linked shows not only the structure doesn´t collapse but it seems to be easy to rotate the shell once it is on the rotteserie... Maybe my fear would be in something like that... wood may not be so precise as metal when you need it to be.

But for that cheap price and noticing there is no only wood, but every movement is done with metal, it is a good affordable choice

I figured you must do something with decks when you posted that picture of when your privacy wall got blown over....very nice....I've never been happy with the stairs on my deck.

Anyway that rotisserie would be sweet!

Jeff, that's a pretty nifty setup they have in Garage Journal. Just make sure the bolts are tight enough or there may be more than just spray required! Big Grin
