Hey Jim!  Wonderful job on this!  I am glad you did a video of it as stills don't do it the same justice.

I think I'm in line next to Mick for the first ride!

Hi Lorrie, thanks for the very nice comments on my  wheel !!!  Yes it dose make me feel good that I could design and build  this wheel with out any plans and make it go around with a motor !!  Did make me think on the motor  , as I went through three of them and a few belts to get it to turn at 3 RPM,s !!!  Yes it dose make a wood worker proud when a project comes together and work,s !!, Have a good day, JIM !!

Hi Jim,

very nice job on the Ferris Wheel.  You mentioned that you had been thinking about it for a year or so.  I'm so glad that you were able to make it.  It looks great!!!  and the fact that you mounted a motor to it so that it goes around really puts it over the top!!!  Great Job!  Doesn't it make you feel good to finish a project that you have imagined in your mind?  And see. .. you did a really good job.  You should be very proud of it. :)

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
