Aaron Adding Machines – wonderful retro is perfection


Andy Aaron makes adding machines. Lovingly crafting stunning retro models out of wood, brass and other artisan materials. He only produces one or two a year, and to say they are exquisite is an understatement. To say they’re expensive likewise. Prices start at around $5000.00 per. Add that up and ring the bell, why doncha?


  I have set about completely re-thinking and re-building the electronic calculator using old-fashioned heavyweight switches, cranks, and levers mounted in antique chassis. I turn out only a few Aaron Adding Machines a year. Every Aaron Adding Machine works perfectly and each is unique. I strive to have my pieces look like they are functional, utilitarian, mass-produced devices plucked from some imaginary office of another era. Perhaps the 19th century, perhaps a time that never existed.

  • What a stupid thing this is. It's nothing more then a modern electronic calculator in an old box. A very overpriced old box.
    I prefer my genuinely old mechanical calculators.
