One on my least favorite register tasks is to tear apart the mechanisms of old cast iron case cash registers, especially when they have a 112 years of rust, dust, crust, and must. The machine done this weekend was so filthy dirty that I had to wipe down the key arms and other mechanism parts that I sent out to the plater. Now that it is apart I can do the flag indicators and detail adder strips. Since my plater is slow, I first sent the mechanism parts, and when they are finished I give the case. Thus, I am able to reassemble and time the mechanism and have it sitting on a shelf when the case is finished. Below are a couple photo's of this weekends project, and the last photo shows a finished version of an identical mechanism.

Bill.
Post me a list of the names of cash registers you would like.
If i see any, I will at least be educated on which ones are worth buying.
I don't know anything about them. ja
