You're quite welcome. Thanks for posting those, makes the text easier to understand.
This was made while recovering from the fall, using junkbox parts.
The real thing uses oillite for the central pin bearing, 1" X 1/4" steel for the link, stem, etc, and
the wooden toy wheel is an open greaseless roller bearing. The three pounds of lead shown here are replaced by
a 2 1/2 pound barbell weight.
One can observe, by imagining the axle in between the two pics, the described "unicycle man" problem.
