rotisserie

Hey everybody,this looks like a great site! I'm restoring a ' 72 SS Camaro with my 14 year old son. The car is for him.It's a 4 spd. with a/c,p/s & p/b. The body is in o.k. shape. Nothing we can't fix. My first of many question is : I'm looking to build a rotisserie for this car. Any input will be greatly appreciated.Thanks for your time,Joe

Welcome to the board. You are new so don’t know the ins and outs yet. This forum is intended for general introductions only. Tech questions posted here don’t get the coverage they deserve. Repost your question in the proper forum and it will have a good chance of being answered.

That topic has been discussed in great depth in several threads already on this board. Do a search and you should find everything you need including plans.

I own that rorisserie. I talked to Mike and ended up going to Indy and buying it off of him. Works great. I had my '62 Impala on it with no problems what-so-ever.

I have one I borrowed off a friend made of 2 inch pipe, works well on 29 model A frame with engine and tranny. I could send pictures if I knew how to get them on.

I've gone severa routes for a rotisserie - the easiest and probably most ecconomical and fastest is to go to Harbor Frieght and get you 2ea 2000 pound engine stands they are on sale this week as i picked up another one yesterday for $79.00. so looking at ~$150+ tax. these are pretty easy to bolt to your chassis- but could use a little wider base and probablly a little taller so the car can spin all the way around.

I've also built several of the large rotisseries- using 4x4 square tube and some 3.5 x 3.5 square tube. It cost $450+ and took a few days - one to cut all the pieces, another to drill all the holes for adjustment and a really long one for welding all the pieces together. Add to the above price that for the giant castors which are NOT cheap!

i have plans lying around somewhere but am in the middle of moving into/ setting a new house and garage so might take some time to produce as the place still is very disorganised. then i need to scan them in so you can see them.

any thoughts as to having a members plans section for stuff like on the "what ya build" section? i won't mind posting the plans to some of the things i have built as long as others share too.

anyone else out there use: SOLIDWORKS or COREL DRAW ?

I've been running solidworks for about 8 years....

What do you need? I've got a rotisserie drawn up in 3d, but haven't detailed the design out. If I could ever get away from getting the shop complete, I could finish it and would be happy to post it...

If you have something in mind, PM me and we can exchange emails and maybe get something going on the side...

Later..

Sorry if this is a stupid question. But how do you get the car body onto a rotisserie if you don't have a post lift in the shop? I "assume" you get 4 or 5 of your strongest friends and a couple cases of their favorite beverages.

I have a "87 Grand National that I will need to get off the frame for some chassis work and decided it would be a good time to patch a few rust holes on floors.

Thanks James L.

The one I built

Here is a link I found to and old article I built my rotisserie from. It works great if I only had more time to get my El camino off of it and back on the frame.

how do i lift it??

go to the local harbour freight and buy 4-1 ton ratcheting hand winches, put some cross pieces of 2x4 in the rafters long enuf to cover three rafters( 6 +- feet)mount the 2x4 on edge with screws and wrap the chain around it and the center rafter. this will give you a strong support and will allow you to lift it safely and slowly.i would not leave it there too long as you may sag the roof but i don't thik it would.
