« Part 8: Treadle Wheel build | Failure! Part 9 of Treadle Lathe series Part 10: Treadle Pedal Mechanism »

It took some sweat equity but the flywheel is finally done. I ordered a few extra bow saw blades this time in case of another blade failure. Now that the flywheel is mounted in the lathe frame, it is really starting to take some shape. Once I get the bearing installed in the frame, I believe the flywheel will spin almost as good as my kids fidget spinners! Thanks for watching and following my build!
