Home Built Drying Wheel

I want to build my own drying wheel. I plan on buying a BBQ Rotisserie motor kit. Anyone have pictures of theirs I can get ideas from?  Thank you

Have you looked in the archives? There have been a number of different types of turners discussed as well as threads with pictures in them.

Here is the one I made in about 20 minutes.  Nothing fancy.  Just used some spare lumber and a BBQ rotisserie.  It can hold quite a few lures and I have enough holes to re-position

the alligator clips as needed

Made one from a BBQ motor.   For what I needed it to do.....it works reasonably well.

This is what I built from 1" pvc and BBQ Rotisserie, I wanted it to break down for storage and transport. I routed out the boards to fit the spit.

That looks pretty darn good rhersh.  Think I might have to lift that PVC design and use it on mine when I start turning bigger lures

Thanks llokkii, I like the way you use the clips on yours, are they glued in or are you able to slip them in and out  on the board? Your more than welcome to use what ever you like of it, thats what the site is all about.

Thanks.  I can slip them in and out as needed.  Can't remember offhand what size of drillbit I used, but it provides a tight fit and is handy if I need to dry some bigger baits.  Sometimes I turn them the other way to get a different angle on the topcoat.  If the holes for the alligator clips gets worn, a piece of tape around the base of the clip usually fixes it LOL.
