It works...it really works!

While it's definitely not a thing of beauty and looks much like a gallows from some medieval movie, it does what it's intended to do.

The tub actually weighs more than I thought it would, so I had to beef up the frame work for it. I'm thinking of adding an old electric motor with some type of gear reduction to it to help spin it into location. Then one day...I may get a life too...lol.

This looks vaguely like a medieval instrument of torture.

Here's what I did to be able to rotate the body through 360 degrees. It worked, and worked well.

Yeah, but where's your electric motor?

Jim- I don't need no stinkin lectric motor :nonod:

Once the body was in the frame, one person can't rotate it easily as it stops at 30 and 45 deg.

I know. It was a joke. Like the way you think out of the box, though. Very ingenious!
