Building rotisserie. I need measurements
« on: March 13, 2012 - 08:12:14 pm »
So, a buddy of mine builds spiral stair cases and has a rotisserie that I am going to convert for my cuda.
This will cost me considerably less than purchasing one already made.

I need to know center heights so I can get the car centered.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

You will want to make it adjustable.
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

More info?

Adjustability is not a problem.

But I do need to know what and where to adjust.

First time doing the rotisserie thing.

The Auto Twirler is a good rotisserie to get some inspiration from.  Easy and very functional design....



A google search should bring up a bunch of photos of that rotisserie.

I just finished mine.    I think it was 3" up from body line in the back and 8" up from front
If you are close it will rotate fine.  Pm me if I you need me to measure anything

Guess you have a good start, just need to make mounting forks.

I would love to purchase the auto twirler.  Not really in my budget though.
So, for 100 bucks or so I can borrow my buddies and make it work.

The auto twirler is an exceptional lift in my opinion.
Do you use the twirler Cody?


Cigar.  When you say body line, where exactly are you speaking of as the body line?

Never mind.

Found the numbers I need.
And a few posts. 
It's hard to remember that search engine.
