Carnival Ride Spindle Removal

Yanking My Shaft- Carnival Ride Repair

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.
