I’d not heard the term “cog drive” before, but it is certainly apropos.  I have found them to be very robust.  The only downside is cleaning 72 spokes is a pain.  That said, SlickStix make the job much easier and faster.

The photo from Bruce  ID’s the adapter and wheel as Dayton’s. The adapter shown is an older version of what Dayton now calls the OTD.  These have been around a long time and hot rodders have used them for decades.  What some used to call cog drive. The older cog drive wire wheels were a bit crude in appearance but very strong and the cog takes the torque better than a spline drive wheel. I have a set of the older wheels on the back of a 100-Six in the garage.  I’ll send a couple photos of wheel and adapters from my phone for comparison.
