    Trying to build a ferris wheel for a county fair display booth in 2 weeks!!!
  1. Hi everybody! I am doing my very first build for a parish (county) fair locally. I am making a 4ft octogon wheel out of 5/8" plywood. The plan is to do cut aways so that the spokes and rim are all one piece. I will use wooden dowels to put the cars on. I am guessing it should not weight more than 35-50lbs when done. My question is, how do I make it move? I need the cheapest solution possible because I am doing this for a club with about a $50 budget. :-(. I know nothing about motors and gears. I really need the solution to be something that I can easily find (like a power wheels motor maybe?).
