    In a round-about way

    For some reason I kept this old cheap rotisserie from a worn out grill....well, I finally put it to use... Hey, anything is an improvement when it comes to me & finishing
    I'm not sure how heavy of a load it would carry, but for the small stuff it seems handy so far!

    That's a pretty neat idea Ken I've got one of those kicking around somewhere and was wondering what I could do with it.

    Ken fantastic. That specific motor is a real toughy.
    I have had one that i brought with me from SA. It gets loads of use and has been strong enough to rotate a heavy turkey each thansgiving for years and doing it for several hours at a time.
    They available all over the show and ebay and run forever on two D size torch batteries. Never tried mine on an adaptor like you have.
    Kudus to you on the great idea.

    Great idea Ken. My dad uses those for tying on the rings and finishing fishing rods. keeps the gel coat from dripping while it cures.

    Hey, what a great idea! You have a mind like a steel trap, Ken. That could go on the dinner table--hey pass the mustard....

    Maybe you could get it up to 33 and 1/3 rpm.

    Now I am laughing because the younger people won't have a clue why a platter turning at 33.3333 rpm is interesting or what it would be used for.

    Enjoy,
