1-inch paper tape supplies

Postby mail@gabrielegan.com » September 22nd, 2015, 6:26 am

Those on this forum using paper-tape with their Altair might like to know that the British office of the company GNT (who manufacture and maintain paper-tape punches/readers) will have fresh supplies of 1-inch paper tape in stock from 15 October 2015. See their website at http://www.gnt.co.uk. I have no connection to the company other than as a very satisfied customer.

Just heard from Bill at www.gnt.co.uk that they will be getting a shipment of blue tape with printed arrows end of next week.

I could only get plain 1" tape for a while, so had a small ink stamp made up to put the arrows on by hand ;-)

If it makes you happy then of course not! This is our hobby. It doesn't have to have practical value.
It just has to be enjoyable.

Bill at www.gnt.co.uk has just emailed saying he has received the new supply of Blue Paper pre-printed with arrows.
If anyone is interested.
