It appears that it can only punch 6 (or 5?) level tape the way it is
configured. The manual isn't very clear on it, specifying repeatedly that it
can punch 5 to 8 level tape. But the one I got only has 6 holes as in the
picture. In the back of the manual the parts list specifies different "guide
and die blocks." I haven't hooked mine up yet -- I need a 5 amp, 27 V supply.
But it appears it has everything except the die block to work with 8 level. I
doubt the local electronic supply house will have that die block, so I might
modify that one if possible.
