Default Building a Rotisserie..

Does anyone have any simple plans for a Rotisserie?

Don't feel like spending a shit ton of money for something I can build.

X2. I have a few cars that need to go one one, and I found the Roto 2000, a VERY Nice unit. Almost 1800 delivered. yeah right. I'll also be building my own, very similar to the roto. It seems all the 1000.00 ones were Chinese or made from 1/8th tube. I Googled rotisserie and found lots of pics of cars on them, and the 1/8 ones seemed to have a great deal of give to them. The pics of the roto (3/16th) looked substantially stronger. So I'll be doing one shortly from 3/16th. How hard can it be? Link to the Roto2000 : http://www.theroto2000.com/ I found a roto on craigslist for 800, used once about 2hrs away. Should have bought it.

Look into Auto Twirler's before you make a decision! They are made in central Indiana, and have always been built well. I have used several of the rotisseries and some of their other products as well, great stuff!

EDIT: They are in the $800-1300 range!

I'm thinking I can build one for around $300 using 3/16 wall box tube.

My buddy built one out of two harbor freight engine stands and some box tubing. He built brackets to mount to the bumpers front and back. And connected the two stands together down by the floor with two tubes that acted as a slip joint. I hated on it big time when he was building it but it came out pretty good.

There is actually a web site with plans on how to make a rotisserie from two H/F cherry pickers. I don't remember where it is, but if you Googled some of those terms I bet you'd find it.

We built one about 10 years ago when doing a V8 Datsun Z-car. We made it so the brackets to bolt up to the body of the car could be unbolted from the "rotating components" of the rotisserie. It enabled us to adapt it to different vehicles by only having to fabricate new brackets. It worked great when I was building my Fox body Mustang race car.
