I have made these folding door rotisseries, and I was wondering if anyone would purchase a set. I'm just looking for information. If enough people desire these then I'll start manufacturing and selling them. They work great and fold into dimensions of 23x37x7. These are just prototypes for my personal use, but if anyone would be willing to purchase for around $300 for the set please let me know. If not, please let me know why not so I can accurately access this. Thanks!
P.S. They would be made right here in the states. So 'Merica.
Huh, I thought I'd seen about everything in my 43 years of woodworking. No idea what those are.
I also am not sure what they would be used for. Could you post a picture with them being used along with an explanation. Thanks
We made similar carts at our shop in Southern CA. We had 25 of these, they enable you to finish both sides of the door at the same time and still be able to move the doors around out of the way. I believe there is a post in the knowledge base about their use.
The thing I liked about our design was that you could put all the ends on one center post to store.
I had realized right after I posted it I should have put a picture up with a door on it. I'll do that soon. Rick, your design is pretty similar to mine. Much simpler, which might be more realistic.
Ah, entrance doors. I just kept thinking cabinet doors and that was just not connecting.
We also made the same carts but lower for the mill. They used them to transport lumber and to load on as wood came off the machinery.
We also made wooden covers to go over the ends to cover the pivots so we could put flat panels or exterior windows on to be sprayed and easily moved.
These pictures are with a door on them. They work well.
I've done this some years ago and it's pretty simple, just some galvanized plumbing pipe, it allows me to spray both sides, it rotates very easily and then it's pretty uncomplicated to put them drying in the rack plus i can spray 2 doors at once on my booth with help i can do 20 doors in a short time, but it's a two person operation.
Marco, can you post a picture of the rack you store them on? I've been tooling around with a revolving door rack idea and I'm curious what you have. Thanks.
Josh, every time I need to finish a door, I think about something like this. In all honesty, I think Rick has some good ideas in that the ends are tied together and the cradle is a drop in kind of deal...better for one man band! I do like the screw on strap pivot on yours. Ideally, screw on brackets, adjust length to door size, plop on frame and go.
Here's what I came up with a while ago. I made mine to lock in any position because of back problems. I already had two identical racks to move back and forth from. One man operation.
