    You guys are welcome to fire up the keypunch.  It was working when I 
left it in February, but it needs to be exercised (or maybe exorcised). 
The printer needs work, but the basic functions should be okay.  The 
sensing pins on the read station also need lubrication, so duping cards 
doesn't work reliably.  You should be able to punch cards with it.
