    Inspired by many posts here, mine is mounted to the top of a Husky tool cart. When the main posts are tall enough for a widebody, it's a bit high off the ground. It's fine for me (I'm 6'2) but I could see this being a back breaker for a shorter person.

    Anyone had trouble getting their playfield to "lock" properly? I feel like there is too much give with the pipes.

    #268 1 year ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    Use a pipe wrench and really torque the sections together.
    I used brute strength and body weight and leverage to get them as tight as possible.

    The pipes are locked in place, the issue is the 1/2 pipe turning inside the 3/4" pipe...The screw-down tightening as enough play that it wiggles a bit. I need to think of a way to improve that connection.

    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    Ah, yes. I used 3/8 bolts on mine, again torque quite significantly. Almost wished I had used 2 bolts per!

    I tried making a hole for the carriage bolt to notch into, but that actually made it worse. Don't do that. It would only work if the 1/2 pipe was "seamless" into the 3/4" pipe, which it's not.

    Quoted from crashpad:

    What do people do to cover the ends of the rotisserie to help protect from sharp edges?
    I filed them, but thought there may be a good solution to capping them off.
    One possibility would be to use some of the foam weather stripping, adapting a small piece to put on the ends, but that would be kind of clunky and I'd prefer something like a rubber foot like you use to protect flooring.

    I sprayed mine with plasti-dip, and it worked great for one use, but the stuff is too easy to peel off.
