This item was in the Elliott Collection Ref: 2012

This item came from the original Elliott Collection but at present we are not sure of the function. The item has two partly hollowed out conical sections with a number of tapped holes. On one side the holes have engraved odd numbers and on the other they are even numbers. It is possibly a spinning mass from a vertical gyro unit used to provide an output of actual aircraft pitch and roll attitude with respect to the horizon.
