The point that has to be made is that the pinion and gear theory was already 550 years old at the time the AM was build, and it was described by Archimedes. 150 years before the AM Hero of Alexandria (the steam engine guy) introduced the pinion and rack and the gear reduction to Europe. So it should surprise nobody that somebody would be able to build a mechanical calculation machine with them around 200 AD.
