Collectibles-General (Antiques)/computing cheese cutter


I recently purchased an antique cheese cutter made by Computing Cheese Cutter Company of Anderson, Indiana.  I would greatly appreciate any information on how to use this machine.  I have found advertising that suggests it is so simple to use that even the "stock boy" can slice cheese accurately with no problem.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to put the cheese and machine together and make any sense of it.  Thanks for any information you may provide.

Hi Merrie,

Sorry, we really don't know the answer to your question. Many companies manufactured these computing cutters and they were all similar but slightly different in the exact way they worked. Since we don't have any in our collection we can't be of much help.  You might be able to find the patent which may be of some help. Try searching for computing cheese cutter here:

Hope this helps.
