    Nice site!

    maybe someone can help me.

    A friend, is trying to sell a antique paper "Fites Peerless calculator" Manufactured & sold by "Less T. Fite"

    It is a very old (paper) type spreadsheet egg calculator. in other words you would move the paper into a window "one going vertical other horizontal" and then move the other paper into the window going horizontal. to come up with the calculation your looking for.

    I can not find ANY information on it, not a picture, not even the name "less T. Fite"

    Anyone?

    it does claim on it, that a patent was applied for, but no date. I even searched the data base of the U.S. patent office. Item states it was manufactured in Murfreesboro Tennessee.
