 Well, do you know if it's oiled or unoiled? I'm not sure but I think I
may need the oiled. I need to ask someone. My wife says that this tape I
have has the distinct smell of machine oil. It should make the punch block
last longer.
 I was just going to order a 1/4 case from Western Numerical Control
( That's 7 rolls for $33.00, in
all kinds of colors. And they are close by in Grass Valley,CA.
 I also want to ask them about the toxicity of paper tape. (My two
sheppards think everything is a toy for them to fight over.)
