Stand Up and Be Counted

Four mechanical counters.  A more efficient way to count beans.

Top one is a "Productimeter" made by the Durant Manufacturing Company of Milwaukee.  Apparently a lumber counter.  For a photo of it in its completed form, see vintage machinery.
The company was founded in 1879 when W.N. Durant sold a counter to the Milwaukee Rolling Mill to count bags of flour.
