Default DIY Rotisserie

I tried the search function to see if anyone here has built a rotisserie from Matthew Harwoods design. I got a great deal on enough steel to build one end so I said what the heck. His plan called for 3" stock 3/16" thick but I think its overkill; 2" - 3/16" is plenty for a 66 Mustang. I'm interested in hearing if anyone else has used this design.

I modified it slightly. I added the balancing rod and hydraulic pump

I got caught up in his design in that I used his measurements since his was for A 40'S B
Buick I figured it would surely work for my 66. I think its pretty tight when you look at the Gussets and all. I was figuring on sleeving the swivel mount just like you did on yours. You did a fantastic job on yours btw. Did you use 2" or 3" stock. This is what I have done so far. Iphone pic not the best quality

I designed and fab'd my own but I used 3" in places. No gussets just good welds, no extra casters just a good center beam, solid rubber tires and a 3 pt hitch and pivoting front axle like a hay wagon so I can tow it outside for media blasting. I used hydraulic cylinders for raising the car and acme threaded rod for the CofG adjustment. I turned down some heavy wall round to make a perfect fit pivot coated with neverseize and made a spring loaded locking toggle for the rotation cog wheel.

I saw photos of home builts and sat down with a notepad and tape measure and came up with this.

I have a very low clearance garage with a door opener I had to fit and spin under. I had about an inch clearance to spare.
The pivot points were 1 1/2" pipe with one size smaller inside. Had some play, but precision is not necessary to roll a car upside down.

Scott I like your design for the arms, simple but strong. Just curious high high is pivot point?

I was in Lincoln, NE in early September for the SCCA Solo Nats...drove by a repair shop that had a parking lot full of really cool old stuff (mostly Ford !), then finally stopped one day. Met Doug Kielian, who is a serious Mustang guy who also makes the "Roller Hoop" rotisserie...pretty original thinking, IMO.
