Whilst doing an odd post on the boards thought I’d share this one. Not the biggest or most complex of things we’ve done but the one I personally have really enjoyed making. The graphics are velcro’d on so the shopping centre can change them for each event. If we get time we are making another to establish who does the next brew round.

I remember making a load of ‘games’ for a rugby inspired event some years back, had a right laugh with them!

Looks good. Well done.
What’s the little white ‘wheel’ at top for?

Hi Rob / John
It does look like a wheel but its a pair of rubber doorstops, one either side. It dampens the ‘clacker’ (not a phrase I’ve ever used before), We can tighten the bolt through to spread them out wider to adjust how fast the clacker (a hinge) bounces back down to make sure it doesn’t skip any of the pegs regardless of how fast or slow someone spins the wheel – worked really well. We could have used some type of springs to make the clacker self return to a central position in time for the next peg coming round but sometimes a more simple solution can be more reliable (and didn’t have any springs in the workshop but seemed to have loads of rubber doorstops floating around from some long forgotten project).
Thanks for the comments

I would probably never have thought of the hinge, but seeing it now, it looks so obvious!
then again, so does the lottery numbers every week! 😆
