Now I needed a motor to make the oven rotate. I got a really high torque one that only does two RPM. The oven was quite heavy already and there is still a lot more to go on so I had to make sure the motor could handle it. The motor has an off centre shaft so by turning it you can adjust its ground clearance. So I made this box that the motor could be twisted in to adjust its height. The motor sits slightly proud so when the top is screwed down it locks the motor in place.
