Yanking My Shaft- Carnival Ride Repair

Carnival Ride Spindle Removal
Shaft and main bearing for the King Amusement Co Supersonic Rocket Ride.

This week we pull the main shaft out of the King Amusement Co Supersonic Rocket ride.   This is a job I tried to accomplish a few weeks ago.

Due to the weight, I hauled the ride over to my day job and pulled the shaft out through the top of the tower with a forklift.

This clears up a few questions I had about the assembly.  Then we clean up all the old grease, assess the damage to the shaft, and make a game plan for moving forward with repairs.

Furthermore, I put the UV cure printer into service to make a custom license plate for the ride.
