Replicating Capital Cuff Box Governor
By Christian Greinacher

Hello all of you,  after searching through the MMD Archives as well
as the MBSI Archives without success, I hope somebody out there could
help me.  A friend of mine recently acquired a Capital Cuff Box Style A
(Bowers' Encyclopedia, page 137) with missing flywheel (the endless
screw is okay). As far as we could find out, the flywheel has movable
wings, fixed in some way to the shaft of the endless screw.

Now I am looking for a picture (photo or drawing) of the original
construction which would enable me to rebuilt the missing parts.
Best would be a picture plus the important dimensions.  I hope somebody
can help me!

Regards from Germany
Christian Greinacher
