These instructions describe the building of a large exhibition model of a fairground Big Wheel which doesn’t take long to build and is constructed mainly from common parts.
With a ‘drop in’ main bearing, it's easy to assemble on site without tools, and runs reliably without attention. It's also safe; a friction drive slips if necessary.
Requires a small DC motor.
12 pages including text, colour photographs and parts list.
Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available. The level of instruction detail is dependent on the original modeller and varies from plan to plan. These are instructions only.
