I looked at published design features of several rotisseries, both commercial and homemade ones, then boiled it all down and came up with this version. It is based mostly on the MP&C design and I certainly want them to get all the credit due them for their original design. I opted not to add hydraulic jacks, adjusting rods, roller bearings, etc. because I believe that by the time you buy all of those components you could just as well buy a commercial unit that already has all of those features. If you decide to build your own rotisserie, no matter whose design you use, be aware that the welds are crucial as far as strength is concerned. Poorly welded rotisseries could fail and damage your vehicle as well as potentially harming someone. I haven't built this one myself yet, so if anyone opts to build it before I do, I would certainly want to hear from you. This may be a winter project for me. btw - you will want to grease the pivot head.
