Here is project number 2 of the winter. Its a Cummons Sky Wheel that I am building. Don did some of the work on it and Im doing the rest. As someone else mentioned they never see Cummons stuff so bare so I figured Id snap some pics of it as I go to give a perspective of how much work really goes into them!
Its based pretty close on the famous Sky Wheels Farrow had in the 1990's. The boxes and trailers on the real ride were completely rebuilt and oversized boxes were installed. It was owned by Bluegrass Shows and now is owned by Dixieland and for sale (if I only had $60k lol).
The tiny rods for the wheel bracing and fluorescence lights were a complete bi**h to be honest. I dont know where Don gets his patients! Other than that I have it pretty much under control. Maybe get the trailers clean and in primer in the next week or so. Ive already got the new boxes built for the trailers, just didnt get them in the pics..
