That is the question, what do you do with a collection of about 6 or 8 mechanical calculators (probably 1930 - 1950 ish). Nothing special there, heavy to post and havn't seen that they make much on auction sites to be worth the effort.

Seems a shame to chuck them away.

If your going to chuck them I’d list them and just let them run. You might not make much but they’ll go to a home that wants them.

There is a section of Bletchley Park which has an interest in old calculators, yours might be of interest to them.

They will be collectible, so advertise them rather than bin out of hand.

Your local Museum might be interested in giving them a home.
