Description

Mallock's machine was capable of solving up to six simultaneous linear algebraic equations. The only working model, built in 1933 by Cambridge Instrument Company, was eventually dismantled (Haroon Ahmed, Cambridge Computing: the first 75 years, 2013, p.24). Wilbur's machine was a similar device.
