    Did the NCR cash registers produced in the 1890's come with a hand-crank for resetting the adding wheels? The square shaft ends on the right side of my model 3 has rounded edges. I am assuming that someone, over the years, failed to use the correct size tool for resetting the wheels. If NCR produced a tool for this purpose, are they available today in collectors' basket of tools?

    I am of the opinion they are difficult to find, and also of the opinion most register guy's don't have one. The reset tools I have came along with registers I purchased.

    I have a repro for $30 plus shipping. Finding an original will be hard.

    Thanks for sharing this photo of the reset tools. Would you be willing to sell one? If not, I can buy a reproduction tool from Dick Witcher. Thanks again for sharing this photo and answering my question.

    Hi Mark, these are the result of 20 + years of collecting, I had 3 other ones that I have sold throughout the years, regretfully. They are very dificult to find, and usually command top dollar. My advice is if you find one for sale don't hesitate. The real ones will be cast iron, very easy to test with a magnet.

    Opps, I read wrong & was thinking about a detail adder. I shouldn't be hard to make one. (I can't anymore.) It looks like a round shaft with on side cut off like a 3/4 moon. Get a rod that is the same size as the end of the turn back shaft & grind off the side till it matches. Then use that rod to size a 3/8 0r 1/2" short extension socket set. get a machine shop to wield in a piece so that the socket fits the shaft that you made??? Drill the other end & made a handle.
    Easy for you, difficult for me.
    Dick
