I am very disappointed in this really useless item. The gyro portion is way out of alignment (balance) and there is no way to correct that---it's glued together. This causes a horrible vibration when you spin the thing up. The vibration causes the thing to travel around the table while on the base---it's really useless. The cheap toy gyroscopes we played with as kids are far better made.

Think about it. If it's way out of balance, it really defeats the purpose. Junk.

I recently got this gyroscope (from a vendor outside of Amazon) for an educational demonstration. I would not recommend it because it suffers from poorly machined parts and a lot of vibration. Like another review mentioned, the gyroscope had some trouble fitting in the little notch on the top of the stand.

Another problem that occurred within the first few uses was that the rotating stand (pictured left in the preview) became loose and the entire assembly started sagging slightly. The cause of this was a loose screw that had partially come out due to the vibration of the gyroscope.

If you're looking make a demonstration using gyroscopes, stick with one of those cheap toy versions or find something of higher quality. The "precision" gyroscope is not precise at all, making it a waste of money.

Saw this and bought for my 6 year old. Had one as a kid and thought he would enjoy it and learn a little about physics. The materials are pretty good but the base is hollow molded plastic and pretty light weight. The gyro has nylon screw-in bushings on the frame but the machine work overall is pretty crude with rough edges and tool marks, the notches are too narrow for the gyro to fit down properly and will require some file work and it squeals as it turns which should not happen with nylon bushings - even after some oil. Thought it would be high quality but it's just high priced. Would look elsewhere for a really good gyro for this price.

I would give it a negative if that were possible! This cheaply made "precision" gyroscope is worthless for demonstrating to kids how and why gyroscopes really work for so many different scientific engineering applications, mainly because this one really does NOT work! I The anchors for the ends of the vertical points are soft plastic, which allows too much "give" causing vibrations, and the center, also plastic, causes resistance so that it turns much to slowly to do what it's supposed to do. Next time I won't be in so much of a hurry to order. I'll read the reviews!

The balance wheel was out of balance; it vibrated badly when spinning. It's totally worthless as an educational item, let alone as a toy! Just a throw away!
