I stumbled across this unique project at Woodgears website; the website also had a link to a woodworker in Serbia who made a few modifications to the original design, many of which I incorporated in my version.
After seeing the video of the adding machine in action, I decided it was the perfect birthday gift for a friend at work. It was a challenging project, especially “tweaking” the rockers to work reliably. But all in all, it turned out well and my friend was amazed by its clever design.
Here’s a couple of videos of the adding machine in action:
I used oak for most of the parts and walnut for the rockers. Finished with wax (for lubrication and protection).
