Hi to all. I'm new to the site and it looks really good. Lot's of info. I'm trying to build a rotisserie. I have checked out most of the forums here and have asked 4 people for plans that they state they have. I have recieve 1 response already with a promise to send plans if they can be found and I'm sure more will follow. What I need from anyone who has ever built one is all the don't and never do's that you ran into while building it. I need all and any advice. If anyone has any good plans please send..thax.

I see that you are Canadian, ......Don't know if you get "Old Autos" magazine, but there is an ad in there for a car cradle that lets you tip the car on its side. I have the paper at work and will try to post the address tomorrow.

Bodys coming off the fram in 2 weeks so I don't think the tilting kind will help.

Yeah, right........I think this thing attaches to the wheel hubs.

BTW, I am in Georgetown, just up the QEW toward Toronto. 04-06-2004 02:13 PM

I won't publish scans of the plans 'cause they are copyrighted but you can get them in the book

I saw one that was for a frame and it was made of two engine stands, worked real well and it was cheap.

Check out page 4 & 5 in my Photo album. It has a couple of plans for rotisseries.
