      Have really good liability insurance. I build something like that for a client of mine. 3 rings largest is 9', with a 2" gap between the rings. Bearing bores are a ***** to set up and get straight. Mine are rolled out of 3" square tube.

          Thinking of building it for my self. Its a simple idea. I like a challenge. Material wise im thinking
          2" tubing 8th inch wall . Reinforced with square tubing where the butt welds are and bearings mount and using 1" 4140 shaft for the pivots.
          Also using a race car type seat with a 5 point harness and foot straps

            Yeah. that looks scary. I could see someone sticking there arm in there by accident and... ouch! Probably better to build a cage on both sides to prevent injury.
