Industrial salvage from the late 1800's, this "steampunk" governor or speed regulator was made for a railroad locomotive or factory machine.
Cast iron, the wheel would have been driven by a leather belt. There is no signature on this American made antique and it appears to be in working order. We have been told this is an Otis elevator emergency brake, but we have no proof.
Dimensions are 21" x 13" and 29" tall.
