      I powered it on. it reset itself. now what? Is there a guide somewhere on the web on how to use an adding machine? Its got 8 columns 1-9, E, +, -, x, a key that says "NA" and has a symbol that looks similar to a battery in a schematic diagram, ST, and TOT.
      Assistance requested please.

      Joe,
      I have a small collection of adding machines and calculators, I think
      that they're apt for this group. Here is one of mine:
