A car rotisserie is a unique body lift unit that enables you to swing the body of a car a whole 360 degrees along its axis. The flexibility achieved allows you to access parts of the vehicle that are ordinarily hard to reach and work on. Then, let's introduce in detail what id a car rotisserie and what to look for in a car rotisserie design?

What to look for in a car rotisserie design?
A car rotisserie is an adjustable steel frame that allows you to mount a vehicle, find the center of balance, and then rotate the entire vehicle to whatever position you need to work on it from. Much like their smaller cousins in the kitchen, the car rotisseries freely rotate and lock providing access to parts and mounts that may otherwise have been nearly impossible to break loose from underneath.
1.Strength of materials
One of the single most important aspects of a car rotisserie is the strength of the materials. I’ve seen some pretty flimsy-looking designs over the years. Most of the flimsy designs are for one reason only, money.
Some companies that build car rotisseries try to cut costs in any way they possibly can. Two of the most common ways to cut costs are in the materials and the shipping. If you use lighter materials it’s not only much cheaper to build, but also cheaper to ship. Unfortunately, this will come at the expense of the customer buying the car rotisserie. The expense comes from the added safety risk to the person working on the car as well as the car itself.
This could be argued as only an opinion, but I have always considered any car rotisserie’s main frame being less than 3/16”, as cheap and flimsy. The same thing goes for all the parts that support the car directly. There can be a lot of stress on the parts that will be holding up and spinning a car.
Some guys might argue the fact that the car they are building is relatively small and light. They might figure they don’t need a big beefy car rotisserie. They might be right, but I have always wondered who would complain if the car rotisserie was over built? You never know if you will someday build a different car or even sell the car rotisserie to someone who will. I doubt the guy buying your car rotisserie will complain about it being built too strong. Why risk too light of a car rotisserie for a lousy $100? That’s not to say the money isn’t important, but it is not as important as your safety or your car’s. You will get your money back at the time of resale of the car rotisserie. If you do the math, you will see that the overall savings by going with lighter materials will not add up to much.
Another aspect of the strength has to do with the welding. If you are going to be building your own car rotisserie, you need to make sure that you are able to handle the welding of it. If not, you should strongly consider hiring someone that is a good welder to weld it for you. It won’t cost too much since the welding part of the project is a relatively small part (time-wise) of building a car rotisserie. If you were to cut all the materials and tack them together, the actual welding time will be between 1 and 2 hours depending on the welding machine and the process.
All in all, car rotisserie can be a huge time saver and convenience solver if they’re something you would use. If you want to restore a muscle car and know that you will be stripping the whole thing down, putting it on a car rotisserie instead of blocks will save you a lot of time and suffering.
