Swapping sprockets to change ratios for an experimental clutch. Gnarling the driven shaft. It was not turning the bearings and wore valleys in the shaft. That was a new one on me and didn't know what was causing it until Russel pointed it out.

That is great, Crassius. Must make DXing a breeze. Did you post a thread?
You guys got me thinking. I have an old exercise bike thing in the cellar. The rear wheel is just a huge flywheel. Gotta think about this. Would be really hard to get started. hmmmm.....
But for a regular engine stand and to start the engine with a drill (batt. operated for power outages, to be used as a generator) Use a ratcheting socket?
