This is the most unique Veeder Root in the entire world.
It took over 15 yrs to come across the last brass increment plate to make a set of 3.
No other computer in the world has this many brass parts, all original Veeder Root Parts.

I call it the "Johnny Cash Recorder"

It has parts from a 1932, 33, 34, 35, 36, 39, 45, 49.
This computer has a set of the first indented wheels in it. I don't know that date.
I had to have these wheels to use the brass pinion gears.....Thanks to Tom Buckles, who had the other half of the set of wheels.
this has Great Totalizer wheels & is Fully Functional.

In my 31 yrs I have only seen 1 brass face "Bar" , so in order to make this happen I used a #49 Head.
I modified #45 brass blinders to fit the #49 Head. I used a #45 Variator with #35 brass cluster gear.
A #45 Variator gives you a better view of the brass cluster gear than a #35 would
The Range Arm Gears were used from 1932 to 1934, they are in 1945 Range Arm Assemblies.
The Wheel Shaft Gears are from 1932-33 "Narrow Wheels". They have way bigger holes.
I did this because ALL of the big gears on a Veeder Root are the same, some are configured differently, but the tooth count is the same.
I used every brass part I had on this one, it may be the only one I make.

The brass gear at the bottom of the Variator shaft is the only one I have seen, from a 1935
