Thanks Bill, I will keep it as it was delivered and get some decals made. I am currently working on doing the counter wheel strips for the English Detail adder counter wheels. I have done the calculations just formatting the print on the strips and then get them done in vinyl.

HBAC will not sell to me. A few years ago I had an order in for $900+ worth of items and it took nearly 12 months and a number of phone calls for them to post them. I put the order in then they said it was ready and asked for the money and it took nearly 9 months after the money was paid. I then tried to order more after that and Barb would not answer any more. I now make my bases and have enough cash drawers to strip and repair others and get decals done by a sign company and buy parts when I go to swap meet.

You should consider making detail adder strips for the American made machines too. Right now there is only one source for American detail adder strips, and that is HBAC. Couple years ago I placed a large order with them for detail adder strips. Order was screwed up big time. They tried to correct the order but each time it was fouled up. Plus I heard all the usual HBAC excuses like "it got lost in the mail" that the "Jasper NY Post Office keeps losing out going packages." Eventually I gave up on having the order completed. It was way less stressful to eat the loss than it was trying to do battle with BS artists who fabricate excuses.

Hi Bill. The model 0 that I have plus the model 1s that I have were all made in the US. as sterling machines. However I can do the decimal strips with the decimal calculations if you want. I have done the colour ones for the sterling model 3 which should be the same as the decimal model 3 I will send a copy to you by email. If you can verify the layout of these wheels would be helpful. I will try to get the size right but my workbook might be a little out. Watch out for my email.. Milton

Hi Bill I have sent you a copy of the no sale and colour keys for a model 3 for the upper and lower wheels so you can print them out and see if the format and size is correct. If it is ok and you or anyone else wants a copy just let me know what ones you need. I cent (.01) 2 cents (.02) etc. Regards Milton

I have made my own detail adder strips for the last 3 detail adder machines that I restored. I think that they look very nice and I can't tell them from originals when I mix them in.I can make them for others if the price is right.. I have no idea what a fair price would be, but I know how much work it was to create them in Corel Draw. A 25 key machine has 50 strips with 30 numbers each. That equals 1500 numbers.
I have attached a photo of some of the strips I made for a class 236. I can provide them uncut if someone wants to cut them their self. which would be cheaper than having me cut them. I know that the earlier detail strips are slightly different and have different font styles. I can take samples to Dayton if anyone is interested.

Most of the machines that I have the strips are in bad condition and hard to tell what the characters are. With the sterling machines I could not find a calculator to do the strips manually, so I worked out an Excel program to enter the amount on the keystem and then it calculates both wheels when you press the enter key, then copy the results to a blank worksheet for each key value.
