WWII AIRCRAFT GYROSCOPE
Using 3 phase current, commonly used on large aircraft such as the Avro Lancaster, this gyroscope would have been the central part of the aircraft's stabilising system.
Here it is mounted on a board for demonstration and training purposes.

- What a coincidence! I had one of those from the same supplier!

- These gyros were used in auto pilots, you will find one in the science museum.
I bought one from K R Whiston's in my youth for 25/6 old money,it was power by a rotary convertor 28v in and 18v 3 phase out.
Hope this is of some help.
