Wow, first post in the new section.

Does anyone have a rotissorie to suit a Zed that is taking up space in there shed?  Do they want to sell it, or rent it out for a long time (I work slow but steady)?

I know I could make one, but having never stood in front of one, I don't know enough about them to make one.

Besides it would be nice to help a member out by helping clean up there shed.  ;D

If not has anyone had any dealings with one of the commercially made ones?  Which ones?  Any good?

If you want to see one or three in action, a visit to Rob at the Z Factory you will see a flock of them. If you are game to make one if you can't locate one that is, grab some dimensions and a welder.

I made one with a hacksaw, angle grinder and an oxy set - as mentioned its not too hard (especially if you have better tools than I did, any sort of electric welder would have made it much easier and quicker  :-[).

Here's the plans for mine, to suit a 180B SSS. A "Z" shouldn't be too much different.

With the shell at the correct height for it to be  "balanced", where it rotates freely without being top or bottom heavy, I have plenty of clearance to the floor. I could probably get away with taking maybe 100mm out of the upright at each end, but it works fine as-is.

Thanks guys.  Of course you are right; I should make my own.  Just hoping someone has one laying around.
