I would agree with you on the failure part if the most important part of the motor wasn't destroyed. I simply don't have the funds left to buy another complete rotisserie just for the one part. I probably should have done the drilling myself but I didn't have any bits for metal. I have learned my lesson not to trust anyone else to do it.
Also for the friendship IF he didn't try to make me look like an idiot by saying it was the metal that caused it to break apart when I could clearly see where he crushed it I may have felt a little different. The icing on the cake was he said sorry and left with no other words when I pointed out the crushed places. I was speechless at his attitude. It was like he didn't care at all he destroyed the piece.
I will just stick with what I KNOW I can do without help of anyone else. I may try anamatronics later on but I don't see anything happening this year. I'm just too sick to my stomach about the whole situation.
