The chads from a day of punching. Started with a small roll of tape which was used up and had to start another roll. I have a number of rolls so should be able to keep demoing paper tape. It appears that paper tape is no longer made with only old stock left to purchase so supplies will be an issue in the future. This paper has oil in it to lubricate the punch. People have made cutters to cut down other roll paper to correct width. Paper was thinner but did work. Appears I got something on the camera lens since the last several pictures I took were fuzzy.
Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments on the web site, or if you have related equipment, documentation, software etc. you are willing to part with. I am interested in anything PDP-8 related, computers, peripherals used with them, DEC or third party, or documentation.
