||The red and blue thing is the mold I made to make the bearing housings. The hub is
a scrap one given to my by Chris Dobbie (who got me into this mad idea/sport). The far
side has been sawn off, that is why it looks strange. I couldn't remove the bearing to
make the mold so I just cut it off.
|In the bottom of the picture is the one side of the unicycle and you
are looking at the inside of the bearing housing. More detail:
The caramel coloured part is the
smooth resin that has been pulled of the mold, the lighter colour
around this is solid resin but it has been sanded so it looks
lighter in colour. The yellow coloured part
is expanded polyurethane foam wrapped in fibreglass.
||This picture gives you an idea how the hub will fit in between the two sides.
|I molded a slot in the top part of each side that the seat post fitted
into, I then used bolts to squeeze the two pieces together. I need to take
better pictures of this unicycle.
||The two sides are different thicknesses, this is due to the my skill of
laying up the wet glass improving from the first one to the second. That is
the problem with prototypes
