    RS,

    Congratulations! You have done it! Very impressive demonstration of the finished Bedini Ferris wheel after a long and concerted effort.

    LOved the new shop - plenty of room for other projects and a chicken playground - what a hoot.

    Thanks for the closeup of the motor amps and the charging amps - the results speak for themselves.

    Yaro

    Hi RS,

    Thanks !!

    I really enjoyed watching these videos! Love your new shop. It looks great. In the assembly video you guys were working so fast that the tarps near the big door were blowing! LOL And the chicken running around was hilarious.

    Seriously, it was great to see this machine running again. Thanks for all the work and money you put into this project.

    Gary Hammond,

    All the links go to the videos for me.... dont know why you get the login... I guess I am logged in and you are not....?
    For some reason the forum is being cranky and not embedding videos correctly.... Will have Aaron look into it and try to fix this problem.....

    Hi RS,

    The link you posted just takes me to the log-in page of Vimeo. It doesn't bring the video itself up.

    Hi all,

    I know it has been a while since I posted here on the Ferris Wheel thread. On Saturday morning April 4th I had a major heart attack, and had to have a stent installed. I had to take it very easy for a couple of months, then it got hot during the summer and I could not be out in the shop during the day as the doc told me to stay out of the heat. In late August I had complications with my med's where my feet swell up, and hurt so bad that I could barely walk. The meds finally got straightened out. In mid October my feet quit hurting so that I could do something. By that time my buddy Chad had gone out of state for a Job and could not help with the Ferris Wheel. So I asked some other buddy's and they were all too busy to help.... So I finally emailed Aaron and he emailed PPL in Texas that was on his email list to see if I could find some volunteers to help.

    I received 10 responses, and I would like to Thank all 10...

    Special Thanks to Martha for donating $100 for food and refreshments for the volunteers.

    Special Thanks to Phil & Lance for showing up and doing an excellent job with the assembly, troubleshooting and tweaking of the timing on the 2 different kinds of motors on the Ferris Wheel.

    The Ferris Wheel is up and running in my shop, and I will be posting pics and videos of the assembly. Will post more pics and videos of the tests and experiments that I conduct with it in the near future...
