How a rookie makes a flywheel

I ran across this on the Home Model Engine Machinist forum.  I think it is an ingenious, easy and almost fool-proof way to make a spoked flywheel with just a lathe and drill press.  The flywheel blank is turned as shown and the spokes screwed in.  The back is then cut away and the rim turned down a little bit so the spokes are flush.  You can see more pictures and the finished flywheel by visiting the link.

Honesty is a good thing, but it is not profitable to its possessor unless it is kept under control. If you are not honest at all everybody hates you, and if you are absolutely honest you get martyred.
