Ryan,

Go down to the place at Portreath and buy an abrasive flap wheel. (think I used a 240 grit one).

Fix it in your drill, and that fly wheel will come up like a new penny.

I think they are approx £8, and they last for ages. (saves on the old elbows)

Thats what I used on my Flywheels, works a treat without having them skimmed.

regards

Mart.

Ryan ,Good old wire brush while running then some emery cloth.
then still while running brasso on a rag, then polish off.
stop engine polish with grate black leave to dry .
Polish off you have a great finish no oil or grease everywere and the dirt dont stick to it Smile
this last for about 3 months then you just black it again.
All my engines I do like this Smile

be very very careful with wire brushing flywheels, because you are subjecting the wire brush to high speed motion, they risk flying apart dead easy, they arent like cup brushes, they are not designed for that kind of work and the wires will fly everywhere, including your skin Crying or Very sad

best thing to do is progrssively finer grades on wet and dry, though just use it dry with some (moist lol) soap on, much safer so long as you keep your hands away from and trapping points
