Default Flyball Governor

Hello -

I need to find a flyball governor to use in a museum exhibit that is being developed by the Science Museum of Minnesota. Since I'm fairly uninformed about these things any information about where I might purchase one and how much I should expect to pay would be greatly appreciated. Also, are all flyball governors pretty much the same or are there important variables that I should keep in mind before purchasing one - different sizes, brands, etc. We won't actually be using it, it will be for display only, so functionality isn't a big concern.

Thanks! Sara

there are LOTS of sizes and several different designs. a partial one (no valve) is usually easier to find than a complete one.

As for where to look, there's always ebay

Well It depends a lot on the brand and the size, Pickering governors in working order are expensive, Probably in the 300 to 500 $ range. If you could settle for a Waters or a partial one without the steam valve you can probably get something in the 50 to 150 range. The Leseuer swap meet in the spring would be a good place to look or I might have something laying out in the shed. Happy Hunting....
