Getting going on this project, some background on the project and required the hydraulics can be found with this past thread.
I decided to make a large rotisserie to rotate, true and line up all the components welded to the 36" diameter x 3/16" thick drum.
The spider at the drum cap end.
The rotisserie 4" schedule 40 pipe "spindle".
1-7/16" ID Pillow Block bearing will be mounted at each end.
The 2 main paddles. I decided one of main goals was easy cleaning, so I am foregoing complex helical paddles that you can't clean the backside of.
So I kept the main paddles off the drum with 1" diameter posts.
The paddles are 1/4" plate.
