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.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
