    Looking for tips when assembling the inner part of the wheel. What process do you use when connecting rods to the steel rod/orange connectors? There are 3 wheels left and 3 wheels right...there has to be a method to the madness when connecting the 24 assembled pieces that will make up the inner part of the ferris wheel.

    Well done Mary on building it, you certainly built it a lot quicker than I did. Do you have any pictures or videos of it would be great to see.

    I don't have a job at the moment but I have been doing voluntry work for several months in a charity shop for the Air Ambulance in Wellingborough but I have been saving up my money for years.
