Four Mechanical Counters: £4.40 + £2.80 p&p
Ye Gods! Ted has bought yet more mechanical counters – he must have about four dozen of them now. These ones were two purchases from the same seller, who kindly agreed to combine the postage.
The top-left counter is made by Veeder Mfg Co. and advances by 1 each time the lever is pushed down. It is non-resettable. The bottom-left one is made by English Numbering Machines and the knob on the left is directly attached to the units reel. This too is non-resettable. The top-right counter is made in England by Trumeter and has a cheap plastic case. It advances by 1 when the lever on the left is pushed, and the counter is resettable. Finally, the bottom-right (non-resettable) counter, again made by Veeder, has a knob on the right which is directly attached to the units reel.
Ted will use one of these counters to count how many counters he has got, and another to count how many times he has used the counters to count how many counters he has got. Another of the counters will be used to count how many times he has succumbed to a K’Nex purchase.
Er… by the way, the levers were added after this photo was taken!
