The wheels look great! I'd be interested in the order of operations, etc that you used in machining them. I'm about to machine my first cast flywheel and it would be a big help.

Stan I used a carbide cutter to remove the outer skin and then a high speed steel bit to finish . The outer skin has sand in it sometimes . I also used a sand blaster to pre clean the sand off as much as I could .Good Luck . Dale
