About the site
This site is owned and maintained by Mark Glusker. I work as a Principal Engineer for Novartis in San Carlos, California, developing new medical devices.
The mechanical calculating machines displayed on this site are all from my private collection, gathered from various sources over the past ten years. To try to keep a limit on the size of the collection, I have focused on fully automatic calculators commercially available during the 1960's, and where possible, only the top-of-the-line models from each manufacturer.
The other half of the site features the model I designed and built of Thomas Fowler’s ternary calculating machine. This is a project that owes its existence to Pamela Vass and David Hogan, of Devon, England. I am grateful to them for the opportunity to help recreate a unique calculating machine that had been lost to the world for over 150 years.
