Initial unit did not work. Coins must be 'pushed'3/14/2013
The unit counts coins by measuring their diameter with a spring loaded sliding bar gauge. The coin must be pushed throught the slot, it won't simply fall through. The initial unit that I received did not work well. The spring loaded arm would stick and not return to the closed position after the coin was pushed through. Therefore the unit would blank the display and sit there, unable to measure other coins or show the current total. I received a replacement that works well. It would be nice of the item description was more accurate, as it leads the buyer into believing that counting the coins is done by simply dropping the coins through the slot. Having to line them up properly and then push them into the slot slows down the counting process.
