Am I the only one that thinks that clean mechanisms like this are beautiful?
Nope. I agree! Works the same with old tills and clocks too! It's a good feeling when a cash register hasn't worked for approx 20 years and you get it unjammed and cleaned up and working a treat :)

Now it makes sense. Thought I couldn't see how just that sprung lever and coin hook could make it all operate. Of course the next question is, does anybody have said 'L' shaped lever within their spares?!

Thanks

You may have realised by now that the sprung lever is sitting in the case and is operated by a cam on the end of a rod which is attached to the mech. The two only come into contact with each other when the mech is inside the case.

I bought a box of Gunther Wolff bits and bobs at the last Coventry auction in November. I haven't looked at it since, I'll have a dig around after this weekend if nobody else comes to your rescue.

While I think of it, and a bit off topic, but here's my cash register. I took it as a swop over 15 years ago.

That's a beauty BP, and thanks for having a rummage for me. I'll get the owner to check she hasn't got some spares lying around though I think that's unlikely.

Does anyone have the original piece that you're looking for?

Jason ……
I don't know where you are in the country, but is there any chance you'd make the Coventry Auction in March?
I think there's something you might be interested in.

For my sins, yes I do! I probably have around 15 - they are not mega old, but from the 50's onwards, electro-mechanical...

Hi BP,

I'm in Leek, Staffs, so Coventry certainly not out of the question! Do you have a link for the auction you could send me? Thanks :D
