But he hasn't finished, yet. From the very first post: " I am in the process of finishing up the drawing to make it all out of aluminum and building it in section for the easy and convenience of storage."
Also from the very first post: "I wanted to share with you the Ferris Wheel i made last Christmas (2016)" That and the youtube video indicate that his "v1" project is working. His post indicates that he is now working on the next iteration made out of Aluminum and that can be easily taken apart for storage. If you watch the Youtube video, you'll find a link to another video showing the wheel moving in the opposite direction, this is why I asked if the wheel had the ability to move around 360 degrees or if it could only move in a partial revolution and then switch direction.
