Part 6:   TAPE LEVER.   This lever works only on the “OPERATE”  position.    Depressing  this  lever  will activate the printing mechanisms and causes one printed stamp to be delivered at the right side of the machine. METER REGISTERS Each  postage  meter  has  two  registers.    One  is called  the  ascending  register  and  the  other  the descending  register  (see  figure  8-6,  part  2).    When postage is printed, the descending register subtracts, or goes down.   At the same time the ascending register adds,  or  goes  up.    So  the  descending  register  will always show you the amount of postage in dollars and cents remaining on the meter.  The ascending register will show the total amount of postage sold. Example:  Present meter readings Descending 502948 Ascending 94701 If you sold postage in the amount of $.48, the meter readings would look like this: Descending 502900 Ascending 94749 Using  these  same  register  readings,  how  much postage is remaining on the meter? How much postage has been sold?  You should have answered $5,029.00 total  postage  remaining  and  $947.49  for  the  total postage sold.  To print the desired amount of postage, set the amount keys on the meter (see figure 8-6, part 3) to the appropriate numbers. SAFEGUARDING POSTAGE METERS Each postage meter is accountable equipment and is  controlled  by  one  person,  usually  the  COPE. (Remember postage meters are only at large MPOs.) However,  custody  of  a  meter  may  be  assigned  to another person if it is not feasible for the COPE to have custody.   Remember, each postage meter has a meter number imprinted on it (see figure 8-6, part 8).   The meter custodian will issue the postage meter and key at the  beginning  of  each  business  day  to  the  operating clerk  and  will  take  custody  of  it  at  the  end  of  the business  day.    The  key  is  used  to  lock  the  meter whenever the meter is not under personal supervision. While the meter is in the meter operator’s custody, the operator is responsible for all postage printed and for locking  the  machine  and  safeguarding  the  meter operating key during temporary absences. ISSUING THE METER PS  Form  3602-PO,  Postage  Collected  Through Post  Office  Meter  (see  figure  8-9)  is  used  to  record daily meter register readings.  These forms are issued in  pads  of  100  forms  in  triplicate.    The  forms  are serially numbered and are accountable.   Each set of three forms has the same number. The meter custodian should retain these forms. 8-18 PCf0809 Figure 8-9.—An example of a PS Form 3602-PO set.
