Super Precision Gyroscope With Gimbals Kit003766
The Super Precision Gyroscope was designed and built to the highest precision from the very start by an independent British company here in the UK.
It is made from solid brass with a light-weight aluminium frame. Carefully chosen stainless-steel miniature ball bearings allow it to run smoothly and almost silently. The Super Precision Gyroscope operates up to 12,000 revolutions per minute using the electric motor and battery pack provided.
The motor can be fastened to the gyroscope with two screws providing hours of continuous use, or it can be used briefly to start it, allowing you to perform experiments for around 7 minutes duration. The Super Precision Gyroscope comes with a number of attachments allowing numerous configurations to perform scientific, educational or simply mesmerising, experiments.
The Gimbals kit provides a 2 axis gimbal for the gyroscope, allowing the gyroscope to freely rotate on 2 axes allowing you to easily demonstrate the power of precession and nutational forces with many experiments.
Gyroscopes play an important role in our daily lives and appear in a diverse range of products where they are used to navigate, to stabilise or rotate something and they're even used in some great toys.
This particular Super Precision Gyroscope is such a beautifully engineered piece it will make a wonderful gift for science and engineering enthusiasts.
