    OK... I have thought about building my own rotisserie but i have come to the point that maybe I should just buy one.

    Any recommendations on rotisseries?

    Using wire wheels which are biting back and sanding disks to clean the inside sheet-metal are pissin' me off...

    Thanks for any input

    This is the one I built last weekend. The design was inspired by szalkuskt. If you like I can get you a parts list and other info. Not sure what you are going after, but this feels good and is movable.

    76 TypeLT...Thanks for those pic's

    I prefer using steel... :)

    And Harry I know Daniel made one out of wood too..;)

    I prefer to sand blast my parts and that is why i want a rotisserie so i can sand blast the body... Using the sanding disc's and wire wheels is taking forever:whine:
