I was out in the garage working on the new rotisserie project. If I can get it rolled over, it sure will be easier to work on it. I plan on using the rotisserie to move it to the chemical strippers as well.

Have you thought of building a hoop style rotisserie Pugs? I have been thinking it may be more compact. I wonder about the pros and cons.

I've gotten the last possible piece off my SB Ford from the '31 and pulled the oil galley welch plugs, tapped the holes and fitted socket head NPT pipe plugs. I ordered everything I didn't already have for the engine (re) build up. The 331/347 stroker upgrade has been abandoned as not being cost effective (my too thin wallet) though some aluminum heads are still in consideration.

Nope, wouldn't consider it.

I'm doing a copy of one I seen on a google search. It uses trailer axles and bearings for the spinner thing a ma jiggies.

Mine will come apart for easy storage.

Something like the pics attached.

here are a few pics of my modified el cheapo deluxe bead roller. it was a made in china model. it was economical so I can't complain but when I was practicing, trying to roll some 18ga for my old truck, I found that it flexed quite a bit with the heavier stock. I re-inforced it with 1/2" flat bar from the scrap yard. then realized that cranking was not going to work for me because I could't crank and hold the sheet at the same time. I removed the crank and got a hub that fit the shaft (it is used for weld on sprockets and I picked it up from an industrial supply vendor) then welded on a flex plate for a chevy 350. then gutted a starter i had kicking around from a chevy 3.1 malibu. I got a shop to turn down the end of the armature so it would stick out through the rear of the starter housing, then put it all back together and shimmed up the drive so it would be "engaged" all the time.then I made a bracket to mount the starter so it would engage with the flywheel. I hooked up my makita 1/2" variable speed drill and tried it out-worked ok. then made the bracket for the drill, the gas pedal style treadle connected with some bicycle cable and a pulley arrangement (to make the pedal travel further for the same travel on the trigger-more control that way) with a lever to operate the trigger on the drill. I used a pto cable stopper on the end of the cable for adjustment. works ok. you could fab it all up on the cheap in a few hours. mostly it is figuring out how everything will fit.
give it a try and if it doesn't work all you have to lose is a few bucks and a couple hours of your time.
have fun

Not only do I like dsraven's design, I like the way he did his lift spring on the upper shaft.

Good design. Also gives variable speed that I do not have though I find I can do a good job pulsing my motor through tight turns. Raven's design should be as economical as any I have seen.

here are a few more pics with some better detail, in case you feel like motorizing on the cheap. it really doesan't take a 1/2' drill, you could probably use a 3/8 drill, because of the gear reduction in the starter nose.

Damn those tools are neat!

I did nothing but open the box that came in the mail with my new Bionic face shield. Man is this thing worth the few extra bucks, much better than any shield I have ever used. If you want a new shield get one of these, that's my recommendation.

I can't wait to get the tinted "visor" so I can go weld with my bi-focals on.

thanks for taking the time to show me these. Man, I might just look into getting a conversion kit. That's a lot of work. I want to skip all that and get to the fun stuff.

It looks nice but I'm not very careful with full face shields and I'll scratch em up quick. Wondering if they sell any with peel off protection type stickers. That would be cool. The one I have I can barely see thru it, but don't use it often anyways so I'll probably just go to HF to get another one some day. I recall you saying you can't wear goggles though so that sounds like bread and butter for you.

I'm hoping Henry, I'm hoping. I think it will work great. The scratching, that is something I am thinking about. I am thinking I need to treat it like it's gold, if I take real good care of it that should make a big difference. They do make a "coated" lense but not in the #5 shade for some reason. We will see, the darn shade costs as much as the whole assy!
