Plans for the marble adding machine
These are plans for a revised version of the marble adding machine, which I built
several of for sale. As such, the dimensions on these plans
differ from the dimensions of the original machine. This machine
primarily differs in that it is slightly more compact - about as compact as the size of marble

Please keep in mind that the machine may require some tweaking to get it to work
reliably after you build it.
These are plans for version 2 of the adding machine.
