Ever seen a rotary tool that used a large flywheel? Answered
Has anyone ever seen or built any kind of rotary tool that was driven by the inertia of a large, heavy flywheel? I have seen kick wheels for pottery, but i am curious about a vertical flywheel.
Lathe, Grinder, pump....
Seems like you could attach a treadle to a pedal assebly of an old bicycle to drive the flywheel....if the pedal assembly was the free wheeling kind, and there was something pulling the treadle back up, it would only power the flywheel when the treadle was pushed down.
