Spinning Disk Trick Solution

ZoggFromBetelgeuse's solution: is a preliminary solution to the spinning disk trick based on the commonly cited tippe top explanation. I have my doubts that it tells the whole story because the disk seems to tilt, so the argument about constant angular velocity is in doubt.

This violates one of the assumptions of the tippe top explanation. So why am I publishing this now?
