10s-CARRY  / PIN WHEEL  /  ODHNER TYPE
An Inside View of the   » FELIKS-M  ARITHMOMETER «



The 1st picture shows a state after the 1st  INPUT = 97531  and the 2nd
INPUT = 12345  will touch the ARITHMETIC UNIT.  Count the active pins!
When the 10s-Carry has to happen, the 10s-CARRY-THORN on the left side
of the Figure-Wheels ( beside the »2« ) lift the 10s-CARRY-ACTIVATOR.
When the 10s-CARRY-PIN of the NEIGHBOR-PIN-WHEEL passes the lifted
10s-Carry-Activator, its SLOPE pushes the 10s-Carry-Pin in row to
the other pins ...



... with the effect to move the Figure-Wheel one step further. The
SHOULDER of the Pin-Wheel behind the 10s-Carry-Pin pushes back the
10s-Carry-Activator in its idle position - and the RESULT is ...



97531 + 12345 = 109876
