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.
