 Hi Jean,
You requested info on building a human powered gyroscope.... how about rebuilding one? I have a North Star Propeller gyroscope. I bought two from a amusement park a few years ago, with the intent of rebuilding them. I have one partially rebuilt and do not have a need for the other. It is disassembled. The bearings are shot and need to be replaced ($200+/-). The frame needs to be sandblasted ($500) and painted($?). It could be a fun project, with a nice piece of equipment as a result. If this interests you, we should talk.
