What would be the best approach? I have a rotisserie motor and the square pole that it came with. I see two options: I could cut about 1 inch of the metal pole and glue it in the tip of a dowel. Since the dowel is made of wood, this gives me quite a few options for attaching the baits. The other idea I had was to use JB Weld and attach alligator clips to the metal rod. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like good ideas...You ave enough square rod to check out both ideas. I find I need to attatch different styles of lures in different ways. I have several 'spits' that attatch to one motor.

I took the square rod and cut off about 3 inches. Then I took the part of the spit that you use to skewer the chicken (2 prong fork looks like this -[ ) and attached it to the 3 inch piece of square rod. I went to the local craft store and bought a styrofoam circle and pushed the circle onto the spit. Alligator clips were easy to come by and I took some quilting pins from my wife (the ones with the little BB size heads) and used 5 minute epoxy to glue the pins to the alligator clips. It works great. I tie a bunch of expoxy head flies and the alligator clips are perfect for holding the fly while I apply the epoxy.

Troutbum, I ended up cutting about 3 inches off the square metal rod and glueing it into a large wooden dowel. I drilled holes in the dowel for 24 smaller dowels that are slit at the ends. I use a small screw and a wing nut to secure the bait in these slits. I got this idea from a picture I saw on this site. I tried the alligator clips but they did not give me a hold I was comfortable with. I needed it to be strong enough to hold a 1 1/2 oz. spinner bait. I have been very pleased with it. My only regret is that my smaller dowels are not spaced far enough apart. This makes it a little tricky to put a bait on and not touch the one beside it.

I used the spit thingys and put them in the round end and put electicians staples over it . Very ungly machine , it has spun over 2,000 lures minimum and just replaced the motor a few months ago .
