could be wrong, but i always thought that if these types of motors stall out (by hitting a stop, or working to hard) that they'll automatically reverse direction, thus go up and then down
maybe someone else can chime in and correct me if i am wrong or share their experience with these motors
I've never used a rotisserie kit before and finally got a chance to look it over. I thought it was just a matter of hooking things up differently but now I think the only part that used from this kit is the motor. Is that right? I don't know where to buy the rotating shaft or the other parts in the picture. I asked a few guys in the family but they didn't know either. So I guess it's beyond me - at least for this year. My levitating bride will just have to hang there. Thanks for your help, though.Well there are several ways of doing so, including jack screws, rack & pinion assemblies, and a few others. The easiest of which for the home haunter, is this.

Substitute the words in the attached picture: "hinge" for "hole with a bolt through it", & "bearing" for "cabinet drawer slide", and there you go. A simple way to convert rotary motion to linear motion. Good luck with your project, and if you need any suggestions or clarification, feel free to ask.
