    Many of you have seen the Wright Line 2600 manual card punch:


    ...but how many of you have seen one of these?


    A code wheel is used to select the character to punch, and a cylinder 
with 12 cams selects the rows to be punched.  A character wheel presses 
against a short inked ribbon loop to print the character on the top row of 
the card.  You can even set tabs.
