Adding a flywheel and treadle to a Jet Mini?

>Has anyone ever added a treadle to a Jet Mini so they can do turnings at fairs and demos where there isn't a AC power source - I thougtht perhaps a member of this august group had already done the engineering -- It seems that with the open frame and ready access to the pulleys that mounting a flywheel and treadle directly below it would be almost trivial. In a pinch I can almost see using a old sewing machine base --

Comments? Jeers?
