Can You Machine a Flywheel with a Brake Lathe??
The answer, yes you can. In this video I show how I use my BendPak brake lathe to machine the flywheel for my Fairmont. There were some parts I cut out of this video that might be helpful. If the flywheel starts to chatter, I recommend taking an old brake pad and holding it on the flywheel while it's being machined. This will help reduce the chatter for a better finish. I cut that part out because past experience has taught me that many viewers are concerned about making contact with moving parts on a machine like this. A valid concern for sure. If you're careful, you should be fine.
