I have an AB National Screw Gyro ceiling fan.  I have had it for 30 years and at one time was going to reastore it for persoal use.  I did connect it once and the two fans work,  I am seeking more information about it.  I still may use it, but need to know more about it.  I know that it is not common   I found one refernce to one that had been restored and one reference to a similar one by another manufacture.

Thank you.  I now know that the other company making a gyro was taken over by National screw.  I will take a full shot of my example and post it.  I have a few  early table fans./  My other interests are really autos.  I own a 1910 Ford touring and a Model A Ford 1931 roadster and a 1931 wide bed pickup.  Appreciate the info.  I have several 1920s hardware catalogs and will check them for naddtional information.

Please post more pictures displaying more detail of the fan motors. National Screw & Tack absorbed AB in 21. AB absorbed Jandus in late 10. Bernard Stowe of Jandus patented the gyro in 03.

Is there anything on those motors to identify a outsourced manufacturer, or whether they are for alternating or direct current?

The images here are a National Screw & Tack AC internal starting mechanism gyro fan motor.

Darel,   can you get a close detail shot of the motor tag? I want to know the company name on that tag. If they are 60 cycle, they are brushed alternating current motors.

Adams Bagnall motors bolt directly into those wire mounts correct?

The motors are by Domestic.  When I get a chance this Friday, I will get a close up of the tag.

Thanks. Domestic it appears was a Cleveland motor manufacturer 15-29. Jandus/AB were Cleveland based businesses. Being your National Screw & Tack gyro Domestic fan motors are brushed 60 cycle AC examples, it appears your example has a high probability of being the last remnant of what was of the Jandus gyros.

National Screw and tack must have dropped the more expensive centrifugal start motors and went to a cheaper line of motors. Your example also supports AB/National Screw AC gyro motors being outsourced.
