Slip…

Is there any information on what that flywheel was originally used for?
If I were to guess, I would say is was on an old ship engine.

Even the Family pond gets into the act

They call it a pond, I call it a lake. It is over 800 acres.

Another Flywheel

seems puny after the monster I first posted. The family were involved in most of the demolition of old industry around the Buffalo New York area. I am glad they had the forsight to sace some of the history.
