World's Largest K'nex Ferris Wheel - Construction Begins
Today I have started construction on what will be, to my knowledge, the largest K'nex Ferris Wheel ever built, measuring 13 feet high and 12 feet in diameter. The wheel alone will use over 6500 pieces and will be so massive that no axle will be able to support its weight (this may become a problem later on). When complete, the wheel, supports, 32 gondolas and drive system will use approximately 12,000-15,000 pieces. The wheel will have 128 spokes attached to 16 white rods stacked on the axle.
