So far we have completed the upper and lower cage segments and the posts that hold them together. Yesterday I turned out the balance wheel on the lathe then cut out the central arms using the vertical mill attachment. Overall I am extremely pleased with the results. Future upgrades for the wheel may include inertia blocks on the outer or inner rim.
