41willys Get it if you have the $$$, well worth it. My good buddy has one for his truck, paid about $1500 new, and it works like a champ. Even has manual hydraulic lifts to raise and lower.

Kampr The time you save will be substantial and you will probably do better work with it. With the time you save maybe you can work some overtime and make up the difference. Don't sell it when you get done unless you have to because odds are you will use it again for another restoration.

Fat_46 I got it... it makes bodywork pleasureable!

$450 for used rotisserie
$30 for Rust-Oleum JD yellow paint
4 hours with a wire wheel
1 hour with a spray gun

the look on the neighbor's face when I flip my '46 all the way over...PRICELESS

65comet I built mine for that price. Sure made working the underside easier. It does take up a lot of room and I plan on selling mine after I'm done. It really enables you to do a lot of things standing up versus on your back...

crashtech Hey the only reason I can think of not to get it is if you don't have room to store it. Otherwise, it's practically a no-brainer!

Let me know when you're done using and want to resell. I'm in the same boat about comtemplating building one. . .$450 for parts and would like to think that my time is valuable. Regardless, anyone have any good plans for a car rotisserie?

Magnus_Jager I honestly doubt you could buy the metal to build it for $500. i say get it. You should be able to unload for what you paid when your done if you want to.

Henry Highrise Ponchos right! Go for it and when ya get done shoot a fresh coat of paint on it and sell it for a little more than ya gave for it.

poncho62 Most of us will say....go for it........But, it's easy to spend someone elses money.

You can allways sell it again after you are finished with it.

astroracer Overbuilt is good. $500 is good. Easy access is good and that should save you some time so that's good. I think it's all good so don't let it go...

Rotisserie or not?

I've got a chance to buy a realllllly heavy duty rotisserie. The guy selling it just took an early 70s Suburban off of it! He's asking $500. I know its overbuilt for my 46 Ford, but the price seems right, and it would make things a whole lot easier. It would also (more than likely) push out the completion date, because I had that $500 earmarked for some other stuff.

What do folks think?
