Hello to all! I am not new to cash registers, however this is my first to own and restore, I am a new member here. I have a much older friend who exposed me to cash registers through the years. My older friends name is Lee Haley, someone here may know him. Alva, Oklahoma is home to Lee and I. Lee has bought and sold over 2300 cash registers since the 1950's, starting in the 1970s I have helped him handle many of them. Since 1995 I have worked full-time for the Alva Fire Department, prior to 1995 I operated an automotive machine shop for 12 years. I have always liked and admired the old cash registers, just wasn't going to give an arm and leg for one! A few weeks ago a 313 came up for sale on a Facebook classified ad, I guess it was my time, I called and it was still available. The price was $150 it was over 100 miles away and made the purchase. The lady that owned it had it for many years and gave me the following information.

"The cas register was in the Cottle General Store and Post Office in Fish Haven, Idaho (population 100) for many years. In early 1960’s, her parents bought it from Jesse Cottle and used it in their hamburger / ice cream stand named Cream Haven. Cream Haven was open only in the summers and closed in 1966.

It was nice to get some time over the weekend to disassemble my register and clean the mechanism. Looking forward to my next work day. This might be a dumb question but what does the little button do? The one that is just to the left of the counter.

Thank you. I couldn't see that it did anything, it might have done something if I would have tried it with the drawer in place. :S
