    davideokills turned me on to these bicycle stands that make for a great rotisserie. Around $100 on Amazon.

    there's a few different kinds on amazon, one is cheaper but this one looks sturdier.. I think this is a great option.. note, you have to buy two of them.

    #3 7 months ago

    A lot of options. Only get these. They are sturdy. Did two swaps, no issues. They were around $100 for both. These are much better than the build your own contraptions. I've used a few different options. This is the best. No screwing into the playfield. Lots of space at the playfield ends. Perfect height and clamps adjustable to grab off center, still sturdy.

    Gotta link to the ones you are using in your pic?

    you buy two. Trust me, the best option out there.

    #6 7 months ago

    Cool, I will give these a try. Thanks

    Does it clamp hard enough to hold the PF even rotated to the vertical position?

    #8 7 months ago

    I've done an Addams swap, which is heavy, and it rotates 360 in any position, clamps are bulletproof, and sturdy. Not my product, but it is the best rotisserie I have ever seen.

    Yes

    This is the junk people have to build.

    and... you have to screw it into the playfield.

    Where did that photo come from? I like the exposed conduit on the wall!

    Most of us use clamps.

    Thx for all the pics!

    #18 7 months ago

    i already have two of these bicycle stands. Thanks for posting this.

    I wouldn't have considered doing this, but it makes perfect sense. You can hold a very heavy bike in any position with them.

    This is a great idea. Cheaper and faster than building, plus practical and handy for bike maintenance too.

    And we all know a few pinsiders should be riding more on the bike!

    And that's not my pic.

    I have swapped dozens of playfields. This works the best.

    #24 7 months ago

    I'm in the middle of a JP swap and use a X frame type stand that supports the playfield on either side but there is no rotating, pain in the arse when you have to do anything on the top of the PF because once it's on the stand you aren't moving it. I'm going to order these right now even though I am in the middle of the swap, it will be so worth it.

    #25 7 months ago

    You won’t regret it. This easily swivels 360 nice and clean. No clamps, etc.

    #26 7 months ago

    Bah, it's not prime.. I sort of have a thing against not ordering prime, especially for the returns but also the speed of shipping.

    I was considering going with one of these styles, it has the quad pod leds which I'd rather not have but the prime options in the lower price range seem to all have that. But... can just return it if it's not stable enough. amazon.com link »

    Here is one a bit closer and prime: amazon.com link »

    #27 7 months ago

    I like that second Amazon one best (the one for $63). I like the fact the two legs point toward the center of the PF. I think it will work well in closer quarters.

    OP's link came up at $56 each and prime for me this morning.

    Weird, will check again!

    If the seller doesn’t stock the item in an amazon warehouse that services you, it isn’t eligible for free prime shipping.

    #31 7 months ago

    I ordered two right after OP posted the link last night and they were on Prime for me as well...

    That must be the case, still not prime for me.

    I found the bike mounts on Google for $30 and just clamped them to a couple of workmates.

    jj44114 Do these work with Playfields with large back walls? Like a modern DMD?
