  • Hurco550:

  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:26:19
  • Hurco550:
  • i rolled a piece of .125" wall 1.25 o.d. tubing into a 3 ft diameter hoop without any issues at all

  • Hurco550:
  • those harbor freight ring rollers really do work well and arent that much scratch if you wanted to make hoops.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:24:39
  • advCo:
  • You guys making out alright with the storm so far?
  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:09:43
  • irk miller:
  • Yep.  I get that, for sure.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:08:23
  • advCo:
  • I'm working in a HF portable garage so the sucker has to get rolled outside to weld anyways. Not the ideal situation but gotta do what I gotta do
  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:01:58
  • advCo:
  • Yeah. I would build the hoops if I had plans to restore another bus in the next 5 years
  • Oct 11, 2018, 12:01:20
  • irk miller:
  • If you have a way to bend hoops, and you want to use that much material, I can see it.  But I don't like how they block the body.    I've used both and I prefer the rotisserie.  Personal preference and restriction on space, I suppose.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:57:07
  • advCo:
  • All this rotisserie talk has got me hungry.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:55:20
  • advCo:
  • Most guys are just using hoops and rollers
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:52:51
  • advCo:
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:52:39
  • advCo:
  • Yeah, that uses the bumper mounting points though. That shit is weak on the bus. Plus I have to graft a donor piece to fix a front bumper mount frame member while its tilted up
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:52:27
  • irk miller:
  • If you leave the fenders on, the you grab from underneath.  They're unibody.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:51:02
  • advCo:
  • If i already had a rotisserie, I would do it that way
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:50:40
  • irk miller:
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:50:25
  • advCo:
  • Yep, but the whole thing has to be boxed and reinforced if I build a rotisserie, and then I have to deal with the COG
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:49:20
  • irk miller:
  • You can mount it in the same location.  Roadrunners have the same chassis style as busses.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:46:16
  • advCo:
  • Problem is on a bus I cant use the bumper mounting points at the very ends to mount a rotisserie. It needs to use the beam and spring plate mounts. It will take double the material for me to build a rotisserie
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:44:44
  • irk miller:
  • A rotisserie is also within the footprint of the car itself.  That tip-over jig doubles your footprint.  Me personally, I couldn't use that in my garage.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:37:32
  • irk miller:
  • So will a rotisserie, and the rotisserie uses less material.  You can convert the "legs" to engine stands when you're done, too.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:36:04
  • advCo:
  • Plus when I'm done, they will store easily.
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:23:06
  • advCo:
  • Don't really need it. I just need easy access to the underneath for blasting/painting and plumbing
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:22:29
  • irk miller:
  • Why not just build a rotisserie?
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:14:50
  • advCo:
  • Oct 11, 2018, 11:06:23
  • advCo:
  • You'll like this Levi, I'm going to build a tip-over jig for the Bus.
