Despite a brave and gallant effort, the fancy new hole-punch has come up short, we are sorry to report. (See below for the first part of this story.) Yes, indeed, the punched holes are the perfect size. But we find that punching them accurately on each sheet of paper - a very important requirement for perfect print registration - requires too much finesse and luck, due to design flaws in the back stop. So, by popular demand and with some fine-tuned contract negotiations, the old hole-punch has given up retirement and returned to duty in our screenprinting classroom. The new hole-punch has no hard feelings and is happy to share duties with a seasoned colleague.
Above, the old hole-punch is welcomed back to work by tool crew buddies.
