Thanks for all the comments  and this latest bout of work may have been due to the full moon over here in Blighty !!!
The bearing blocks now need to be made and the first one is getting there,  and i need to make some 12BA square headed bolts, I usually just use hex bolts and file them off square as there is enough room to do that with an oversize bolt thread.......

more work on the governor, i have used square stuff so i could turn the 10BA thread and the extra length is to enable the part to be filed. This governor is a quite simple watt type with a minimum of parts so will be quite easy but a lot of filing. The finished dimensions are .065 " wide and .035" thick.Also i am still not too well with my asthma condition so have lots of new medication to take.....exept i am not allowed to drive or use tools and machinery !!!!

The filing job looks awesome.
The meds not so much.
Is the asthma a seasonal thing? Hope you improve soon.
Don't need the driving...but the tools and machinery? That's sad.
