In order to see these I had to strip down the web strip and in doing so I
see pictures of another totally un seen before roaster.  Could you talk
about that as well?

oh yeah, that.  well, that has since been disassembled.  the problem wasn't 
so much the configuration, but rather the rotisserie motor that turned too 
slow.  it was direct driven, so i was stuck with it's designed rate... slow.
the inner drum needed a little attention, but since i didn't want to spend 
more money on a faster motor i took the whole thing apart and used the 
pieces for a different setup.  on the new one i'm using the same motor, but 
with a gearing system that gets the drum up to speed.
however, as i mentioned before, my skillet setup is just too convenient to 
use for me to have finished the 'improved' design of the drum roaster.  some 
day.
