The FUNCTIONS of the LEVERS  ( named a, b, c, d, e )  are ...

   LEVERS :   a          b         c        d        e
   ========================================================
     up   |  Total   | NonAdd | Subract | Repeat | NoPrint
     .    |   .                                      .
    down  | Subtotal |   .    |   Add   |   .    |  Print
   ========================================================
    Init  :  middle  |  down  |  down   |  down  |  down

ADDITION:
---------
Everytime a number is entered and the handle is pulled, the
number is printed and added to the content of the memory.

RESET KEYBOARD:
---------------
If a wrong figure is entered in a column, repeat with the
right figure. To clear the keyboard push the green button (C).

REPEAT:
-------
To enter the same number more than once, set lever [d] = up
before pulling the handle. The keyboard will not be cleared
after releasing the handle.

SUBTRACTION:
------------
To enter a negative number, set lever [c] = up before pulling
the handle. ( It is possible to repeat negative numbers. ) 

S SUBTOTAL:
-----------
The cumulated sum will be printed when lever [a] = down
before pulling the handle. The memory will hold the actual
sum after releasing the handle.

* TOTAL:
--------
The total sum will be printed when lever [a] = up before
pulling the handle. The memory will be cleared after releasing
the handle.

# ID-NUMBERS:
-------------
An ID-Number can be entered when lever [b] = up (# NonAdd).
This input is not registered in the memory. 

NO-PRINT:
---------
Because the calculator has a display, showing the actual
content of the memory, it is possible to use the machine
without printing by setting lever [e] = up.

R E M A R K S   T O   R E S T O R A T I O N :
=============================================
The calculator came with blocked  keys & levers and a non-functional
handle.  Because the case  can only be lifted when  levers [a] & [b]
are to move in the middle,  lever [b]  had to be bent to fit through
the slot. It should never bent back to made  maintenance accessible.

To open the cover: Remove (1st) the ribbon cover, (2nd) the printing
unit, (3rd) the four screws holding the cover.  The ClrKbd(C) button
mechanic is connected with the cover!
