For what little it's worth in amongst you giants, I agree with  Emma on the 
3-D aspect point and her solution, which was how I was picturing it  in my 
head from the blazon. And I agree with Daniel on both points of why it  
isn't a slot machine, both of which occurred to me when I read hers but he said  
it better and more succinctly than I would have.

Thing is, I don't  think that they are "in the same group".  "A charge
within a circular  charge" is not a standard arrangement in the same
way that "two and one" or  "in saltire" are.

More definitely, I see the wheel as one charge -- a  winged-wheel, so
to speak.
