Regarding bearings. I'm not that far along in my planning yet, however I'm using the following plan as a reference for the mechanics (though not the frame design):
If I were to cut the belt groove out of a solid wheel, I presume that would be done with a chisel while the wheel was spinning, or is there another technique?
