  • Ferris Wheel

    Not so much for bragging, but to see if I can get the hang of re-sizing my photos to fit the restraints of this site. Although, the Ferris Wheel did take most of the winter to finish.

    Well done, Buzz. You've mastered re-sizing photographs and attaching them to your posts and you've shown us a very impressive project into the bargain .

    I wouldn't have the patience to cut something as spectacular as that.

                      Thanks to all for your kind comments and yes, the wheel is powered. The alignment during construction is extremely important as it doesn't take much misalignment to lock up the bushings. It turns about 3 RPM. I have other projects I'll post because I am impressed with the design and think they are very impressive.

                        Painting

                        Jediscroller: Painting projects isn't too bad a job. I am also into model making and own several air brushes. These make the painting a lot easier and gives a much better job than brushes and spray cans. You have more detail control with air brushes.

                                Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75.

                                My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an bbc.co appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
