Re: Duo Mat clockwork question

Thanks all for proving me with the confidence to have a go at this. It proved easier than I feared! I removed the governor and all looked clean and well until I actually tried to move the two weights which were gummed up solid. A bit of alcohol and all is well again. Next question.
