I finally started my PVC Ferris Wheel project. The pic is for the first phase, where I cut all of the PVC and did a dry fit (nothing glued yet). It spins great even without the PVC glue.
Phase 2 is to actually glue it together except:
1) The cross bars to tie the two sides together which use Spears Tees to snap it together and take it apart for storage,
2) The uprights from the bottom frame that support the weight of the ferris wheel will be a dry fit for storage and all weight is down, so no stress on these.
Phase 3 will be to paint it and add baskets for my riders.
Phase 4 will be to add a motor to it.
Phase 5 (probably next year) will be to add rope lights to the ferris wheel using Toymaker's method for getting power to the turning ferris wheel.
I'll post updates later, but I have to go out of town later today on business and will be gone all week, so no more progress until next weekend.
