How about a sealed roller bearing on the other end? Make the handel removable and add something like this so it rides smoothly...

Nice set-up. Here is a gadget that you may want to check into. It's a counter balance to compensate for the load variance. It is really useful when doing a turkey or when two butts are on the spit. They take all of the strain out of the motor.



You slip the eye onto the shaft opposite the motor and tighten using the "L" on the arm. Then, you loosen the wing nut on the solid stock and position it on the arm to equalize the load. The farther out the more weight is applied.

You can adjust it perfectly in 3 or 4 revolutions of the spit.

No, I used to have a homemade one on my campfire rotisserie and bought this one the minute I saw it. I got it from a company that sold accessories when I ordered some extra forks. EDIT Make sure you check the size of your spit, they come in both 3/8" and 1/2".

I've had it quite some time but THIS dealer has one that looks just like it. I also have a couple of the round baskets. You can load them with things like chicken wings or veggies and let them roll... You can also lash ribs to them and it works great.

Rotisseries are cool and the only issue I have is you get a done spot on something like a prime rib from the heat transfer from the spit. But I love the self basting and even cooking when using them.

nice mod , can't wait to see some meat on it

that bearing Dr Ky had looks like the perfect add on

I had one of those counter balances before they are a NEEDED item in my book. you can dial in a decent balance and avoid the slow climbs fast drops of unbalanced meat

did I mention it would look better with meat
