50 They were used on the steam engine, waterwheels, telescope drives and were soon to be used on steam and water turbines, telegraphic apparatus, the phonograph, oil and gas engines and for the speed control of electric motors. '52 The eminent French physicist J. B. L. Foucault53 was one such inventor. In 1862 he produced a friction governor based on the aerodynamic resistance of a centrifugal fan,54 a device reminiscent of Robert Hilton's lift tenter. This governor apparently worked well and Foucault had visions *of triumphing where James Watt had only a partial victory', visions of great commercial success and financial independence.

E. unstable. To control the oscillation they tried first a simple friction brake, and, in 1864, an air dashpot. Other engineers had similar stability problems with isochronous governors. In 1871 an English engineer, J. Head, wrote of one such Jean Joseph Leon Farcot is remembered not for his work on governors, but as the author of the first book on servo mechanisms, published in 1873 (see chapter 4). 26 Fig. 10 The regulation of prime movers Parabolic governor with air damper, 187f [Reprinted by permission of the Council of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers from Proc.
