 ```TECHNICAL DATA of the Mechanical Printing-Calculator RESULTA-P7 ***************************************************************** 7/7 Dimensions: (ca.) Width = 6_1/4" / 16 cm Depth = 11_3/4" / 30 cm Height = 5 " / 13 cm Weight: (ca.) 8 lbs / 3.7 kg Mechanics: Setable Counter with Input Display Black Nylon Ribbon (= Typewriter): 1/2" * 30' / 13 mm * 10 m Paper Roll (Standard): 2 1/4" * 2 3/4" * 165' (W * D * L) 57 mm * 65 mm * 50 m (B * D * L) Functions: Add, Subtract Registers: Input = 7 Decimals Input-Display = 7 Decimals Arithmetic = 7 Decimals Manufacturer: Paul Bruening Berlin West Germany 1967 H O W T O U S E the RESULTA-P7 ************************************** CLEAR THE ARITHMETIC UNIT: -------------------------- Make sure the left vertical lever on front is set to (+) ADDITION. If not, push it to the right to release the lock and move it from (-) to (+). Clear the arithmetic unit by pulling down the lever on the right. ENTER A NUMBER: --------------- Use a pen and pull-down the appropriate number. Depending of the left vertical lever on front, the input is (+) ADDED or (-) SUBTRACTED. The result is visible in the arithmetic unit behind the top window. INPUT CHECK: ------------ When the black knob on the right side is set to the middle (0), the input will stay and show the number entered in the lower display. Before entering a new number, press the bar on front to release the input segments. If the black knob on the right side is set clockwise to (X), the release bar is locked down and each input segment snaps back immediately after entering a number. NEGATIVE RESULTS: ----------------- Negative results are displayed in the arithmetic unit as the COMPLEMENT of the next higher 10, 100, 1000, ... Example: -12 = 9...988 PRINTING THE INPUT: ------------------- Only the number staying in the input device (see INPUT CHECK) can be printed. Set the black knob on the right side counter clockwise to (P). Hit the release bar on front and hold it down until the printing is done together with clearing the input. PRINTING THE TOTAL: ------------------- Since only the number staying in the input device can be printed, it is necessary to RE-ENTER THE TOTAL: Set the left lever to (-) SUBTRACTION. Press the red key (*) on top. Pull each column of figures down until the sum (seen behind the top window) will become 00...00. The total comes in the lower display. Set the left lever back to (+). Now the number is ready to be printed... CHANGING THE PAPER ROLL: ************************ o Turn the paper knobs backward. o Pull out the axle of the paper roll. o Put in the new paper roll so that the paper end comes from the top and goes under the axle in the middle and up again (s.REM: This gives right friction to hold the spool in shape). o Lift the paper feeder, push the paper end into the rear slot and turn the paper knobs clockwise. o Feed the paper and adjust it. o Tighten the paper roll. CHANGING THE RIBBON: ******************** o Remove the cover by pressing simultaniously the right and left release buttons on the bottom. o Observe how the ribbon is spooled: LEFT = counter-clockwise, RIGHT = clockwise !!! LEFT SPOOL is ACTIVE, the RIGHT SPOOL is PASSIVE !!! o Change the ribbon. o Replace the cover. R E M A R K S TO R E S T O R A T I O N : ================================================================= (1) The clearing lever was broken and repaired with an aluminum handle: The new & old piece are held together with component glue, enhanced with a piece of cat food can on each side. (2) The FEET were detoriated and must be replaced with new ones. (3) The calculator was found without paper axle and fastener. The axle is home-made of an aluminum tube, screw-axle and nuts. The paper fastener is home-made of brass wire ... ... On the back side is a build-in holder for the pen. (4) "67" = 1967 = PRODUCTION-Code is scratched in the bottom. impressum: ******************************************************************* © C.HAMANN http://public.BHT-Berlin.de/hamann 12/30/06 ```
