I mark all mine before bead blasting them For that reason. I learned that the hard way. They line up better than just trying to eyeball them.

The lower wheels are differnt from the upper ones. That tab on the side of the lower wheel drives the upper ones.

I made a jig to put the counter strips on with that will get them in the correct position. I reset the wheels to the home position (zero) and then mark the "00" position. I use that to position the new strips. The home position will change if you do not get the reset stop levers on the side of the counter in the original positions. I mark the wheels, top and bottom as I remove them and put them back in original positions along with any spacers or washers. I have found 3 types of wheels, bronze, steel and pot metal. The pot metal wheels will swell and warp out of shape and I have to machine them on a mini lathe back into size to make then fit when I reassemble them. If any one is interested in a jig, I could make them one for a reasonable price. I also make my own counter wheel strips. Not all strips are the same font size or color. contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The round stop cam on the end of the main counter wheel shafts controls the home reset positions of the shafts and the wheels. Therefor there can be 3 wrong positions that the wheel can be in if the cam is not positioned correctly. I carefully mark the cam position before I remove it. If you have already removed it you need to find the home position of the lower wheel using the transfer carry tab on the lower wheel. The tab on the lower wheel turning top to the front will contact the upper wheel at the 29th position or 1 click before home (zero) turning it top to the back. The main shaft should be the home reset position when the wheel goes 1 position past the transfer with the upper wheel. It sounds complicated but once you look at it you can see what needs to be done.

Wow, that is really neat. Just curious, what do you think you would need for one? The teeth are on the opposite sides top and bottom, Do you just turn the wheel around to do the top row?
