==========================================================================
The FACIT was jammed:  Keys were pressed down with forces at the same time
as the crank was turned - OhOh! - Prevent calculators from (bad) visitors!
To make the FACIT working again,  "Layers of Levers"  had to be removed,
re-bent, cleaned, oiled, ...   Finaly assembled:  All works well again!
