Glad to see you back at it.  Just had some surgery myself so sympathies there.   :old:

FWIW, candelabras have more than one light.  That's a candlestick.

Spinning Wheel---

I seem to remember that Popular Science or Popular Mechanics ran a story on how to build and operate a Spinning Wheel somewhere in the 1960s or early 1970s. All of those old issues are online. I just mention that as maybe that lead goes nowhere or is not what you wanted. Anyway, I seem to remember that.......

I designed a brass flywheel that used segments in order to make it affordable, but I haven't made it yet. I think it should be workable.
