Trip 21 to Uganda, Post 6 – What is that?

Those of us over 40 years old will remember these fondly.  No one in Uganda could figure out what I was building though.  They figured how to play on it fast enough!  The kids love it and promised to stick to the rule of only 6 at a time.  I love building playground equipment!!


The pivot bearing shaft was made and donated by Pinnacle Converting Equipment in the US and we carried it to Uganda.  The rest was built on site with hammers, DeWalt  cordless tools, and a rented portable welder.  Here’s how…


Anchor structure welded to the pivot post.


Pivot post concreted in place.


Platform welded.  Hand rails and tie rods made Blacksmith style.  Then assembly.
