lil mo flywheel project 10-18.jpgHere is my latest 3D printed flywheel destined to go on my little Mo vertical engine. Posting the aluminum version as supplied and the 3D version with curved spokes that were weighted with brass slugs in each spoke leg to get closer to the original aluminum flywheel weight.

3D version is just slightly smaller in dia.(6-7/8" versus 7.25" for3d printed flywheel.jpg original casting) due to the limits of my friend's printer capacity. As soon as I get the paint job and the stone and wood base completed will post a photo of the finished project.
