I like how that guy uses hand tools to built it!

 

Here's a link to a similar treadle design, complete with schematics and bill of materials

I must say it would be a lot easier to find an old flywheel like in the video and use that instead of crafting one out of wood!

I have a few pulley wheels from haybale hooks I was going to use this design as a base for a treadle grindstone at some point.

 

Thanks for posting the vid, Glenn!
