My coordinator is putting the book together and I forgot to ask you guys for a measurement. Can anyone give the measurments for the narrow Tokheim 850 or how it differs from the larger 850?

Thank you in advance.

I can get you those measurements tomorrow unless someone else beats me to it? The smaller diameter 850 has the same upper skins, clock, etc. The mid section on the smaller one is stamped steel instead of cast iron like the larger one. The smaller diameter 850 is also shorter, at least the two I have owned were. And they were original.

in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Large version sheet metal Height= 48", Diameter= 18-7/8"

Jack,

Here is a picture of my two, side by side.

You can use it in the book if it’s not too late.

The skins look like there might be more than a 2.25” difference on mine, however mine may have been modified. But you get the idea with this picture. Use it in your book if you want.

Both of mine have original sheet metal (not restored) in good condition, do not appear to have ever been modified.
