Hi all,

I've got the central drive tube and side discs from a Henny Penny chicken rotisserie, but no baskets or spits (if that makes sense). Which is kind of a score. But, at the same time, there are potential drawbacks to using that drive tube, namely that it seems way too short for most pigs and other game.

Any thoughts on potential designs and mods? Would love to integrate wood and make an attractive aesthetic. Suggestions on motors, stepdowns, controllers, etc.? Early stages, but open. I could even just, you know, sell them for profit and buy something more relevant. Also, I have an old caja china box and may want to look to integrate this with that at some point.

Look forward to your thoughts and wisdom!
