Posted:has anyone played with gyroscopes and fire??? was thinking might be a nice backdrop if you had some wheels lit up that were spinning and if you only held one side of the axel then they would turn in a circle, add a motor to keep it going for as long as you like and you got nice toy.

Posted:Well, this is my first time so here goes!
Ajtag, I've been playing with fire wheels for over ten years now thanks to the infamous 'Pyrogyro' or Mark Wheel (as mentioned in a previous thread on this subject)
There is a little bit of fire wheel footage on the net. It takes a bit of looking for but it's worth it. Check out 'www.cosmosjugglers.co.uk' go to 'holidays' then 'lauriston hall' then 'lauriston hall gallery' ! If you scroll down the page you will see a photo of a fire wheel in action and also two wheels on a fire sculpture. On the downloadable movie you can see me and my wheel in action just after the ring juggling also check out the moving fire wheel sculpture.
Phew, have fun juggle
