For more detail on the storage screw have a look at the first image in the Brough Park section of the Photo Gallery which can be reached by clicking on this image and scrolling up. Additionally, there is an Engineering Drawing of the storage screw in the first image of the Figures from George Julius' paper presented to the Institution of Engineers Australia in 1920 section of the Photo Gallery which follows the Brough Park section. The ten adding shafts are clearly visible at the back of this adder. They sit beneath the fixed support bars connecting the two end plates, the distant end plates are the back of the adder. There is an Engineering Drawing of the epicyclic gears and escapement wheels on an adding shaft in the second image of the Figures from George Julius' paper presented to the Institution of Engineers Australia in 1920 section of the Photo Gallery. The escapement wheels on the adding shafts can be seen. Below these wheels are solenoids that operate the escapement mechanisms that allow graduated rotation of the escapement wheels. The solenoids are activated by impulses from the Ticket Issuing Machines. There is an Engineering Drawing of an escapement wheel, escapement mechanism and solenoid in the third image of the Figures from George Julius' paper presented to the Institution of Engineers Australia in 1920 section of the Photo Gallery. The angular motion of these wheels represents the transaction values. The fewer the teeth on the escapement wheel the greater the movement with one operation and the higher the value. The epicyclic gear arrangement that connects the escapement wheels along the adding shaft cumulatively adds the rotation of the escapement wheels along the shaft such that when it arrives at the storage screw the rotation is the sum of the rotation of each escapement wheel on the adding shaft. There are 6 escapements and solenoids on these shafts. One of these adder units is visible on the table to the left of this adder. Nine complete adding shafts attached to the storage screws and drive cogs can be seen on the table at the rear of the image, waiting to be installed on an adder table like the one this is sitting on. The cogs attached to the table provide the drive for the adding shafts and storage screws and are driven by a motor that will be installed underneath the adder table.
