It is evident that the contraption was indeed completed as centuries later, Ben Linus would utilize the wheel to move the island in an effort to evade Charles Widmore's attempts at locating it. When the wheel is turned the light emanating from the source brightens eventually causing the entire island to be transported somewhere else. It is alleged that whomever physically turns the wheel is forever banished from the island. After Ben turns the wheel, it (unbeknownst to Ben) becomes dislodged, causing the island to skip through time. Locke is forced to fix the wheel, injuring himself in the process and subsequently teleporting him off-island to Tunisia.
