    Rotisserie

    Can Anyone give me a Brief discription on what SIZE motor I would need for one of those Homemade Rotisseries out of a 275 gl Oil Tank?
    I have searched the wonderful internet and unless I'm looking in the wrong places...I cannot seem to find anything on building one out of an Oil Tank. I think everything else is pretty simple....cutting it in half; hinges; handle/s; rotisserie; grill/s, I'm just not sure what size motor to use, OR unless You know of a site.
    Thnx

    If you have access to a welder and a grinder here is one you can make. How to Build a Homemade Rotisserie | eHow.com

    Basically all you need is an electric motor, a small sprocket on the motor, a large sprocket on the rotisserie and a rheostat to control the motor speed.

    So, I guess what I need is somewhere in the range of 1/20-1/40 hp, 4-6 rpm motor.
    Thank you...........
