Mauser calculator
« on: May 05, 2013, 09:17:43 AM »
This machine will go to the Oberndorf Weapons Museum in a few months.
Mauser entered the business machine / calculator business in the late 1920s in order to find some extra revenue during the depression years. They were quite succesful and produced calculators, both manually and electrically operated until the war.
This particular example is fully complete and operational.

Very cool.  I'm always keeping my eyes open for the hair/beard clippers they made.  The museum has some great items in it.  Do you recall the web site for the museum?  It used to have a 3D photo you could spin and do the virtual tour.

Yes, that old website gave me the first experience with the museum. A pity they took it offline. Some changes were made to the general lay-out. Benefactors like H&K and Feinwerkbau are getting a bit more space.

So the museum has no web site?  Let them know we'd be happy to help them if that is the case.
