That doesn't look fabricated at all.

Cheers, Hugh.

Looks like you got a parcel from Eric, now you can make a pair. Its a pity he did not make the flywheels from a split pattern but they are should be soft enough to fettle away.

Should send them to Jo.....she is the "fettle fanatic"
Yes Jason, Eric did send them to me. I have not tested the "workability" of the cast iron yet. I broke the spindle, slide  collar on my mill, so I have to repair that before I start any milling/flycutting.

Maybe you should send them to me and I will give them the attention they deserve. :embarassed:

Jason doesn't trust me with his, I think he thinks I might get too fond of them so he won't risk it  :ShakeHead:

I have noticed a trend that you are attracted to castings, (or vice versa)!!!!!

I am attracted to other things as well  :LittleDevil: but I have more success with castings  :-[

You may have noticed  :thinking: that I haven't posted much lately. I have been helping a friend move back to Aus. He has been here for 40 + yrs, and is now retiring back to his homeland. He and his wife went on a trip to England and Ireland in Sept., where she had a fall and compacted a vertebrae in her lower back. L1 if I recall, they are in their 70's, so my wife and I have helped them pack all their stuff.
He was building a 2 place helicopter, which I have now inherited, it is a 1983 Rotorway Exec. A full kit with all upgrade packages. It has never been built completely, so is now in storage along with my 30 Model a hot rod chassis. I intend to sell or donate it to a worthy, (read educational) cause, or museum.
I do have a Pilots License, and I have flown R/C helicopters, but real helis have not been my favorites to fly. Something about a million precision parts flying in very loose formation :lolb:
Will be back at the Lister very soon.

Well the '30 Model A street rod is finished except for carpets and top. We are still in process of selling house and moving, so no machining taking place  :(

Moved to "new" house, now getting all the equipment into place and working. New mill and lathe still to be picked up and moved in. Next 2 weeks should see some action.

Sounds like things are starting to settle down a bit Pat. Will look forward to seeing the Lister project resume. Meanwhile pictures of the new lathe, mill, and shed space are always welcome too :)

New Mill is in. Lathe is on Back order.
I tested it out by machining 1 of Eric's Cylinder water jacket castings, partly!
