a gear wheel mounted on said hub in spaced relation to
said digit drum, a bushing on said hub between said
pins from the openings therein comprises a fork-shaped
tool having a pair of parallel shanks, a pin extending
perpendicularly from each of said shanks adapted to
disc and said gear Wheel, means securing said gear Wheel
to said bushing, and means releasably engageable with
