Does anyone want to part with their wing and fuselage rotisseries???? I can build them, but I figure there has to be a bunch sitting around finished builders don't need. Grant 352-267-4663

Hi Daisy (Cool Name)..I made my wing rotisserie's out of 2X4's from a plan in the EAA magazine but next time I'm going with this guys idea

Scroll down and you see the end plate bolted on and supported by chains.

I made a fairy cheap rotisserie for the fuse from a Harbor Freight engine stand and a plywood "firewall" for the front end and a saw horse for the tail...works well

Not yet, but the engine is on, so I'm closing in on it. The hold-up has been the changes I've made. In retrospect, I've never come close to accurately estimating the additional time it would take to make any one of the changes. They always present new issues, and even little changes take about ten times as long as building to the manual. Taken together, they've added years to my build. It's been fun designing and building them, and I think the results will be worth the effort. We'll see when she flies...

Speaking of holding things up, my rotisseries are promised to another builder. They're made from 2x4s, and I didn't envision them for more than one build. I'll do a little strengthening before I send them on their way.
