Seek Hand Paper Punch by Bob Streicher
By Matthew Caulfield

After years of use, my trusty spring-loaded single-hole punch
that I used for editing Wurlitzer band organ rolls fell apart and
I can't seem to put it together now.

The punch was a handy little tool and it punched many thousands
of holes in roll paper for me.  It was made by the late machinist,
Robert "Bob" Streicher of Shohola, Pennsylvania (Pond Eddy, NY).
I intended to buy a spare from Bob, just in case, but he stopped
making them when he could no longer obtain the basic spring-loaded
center punch which he used as the basis for his hole punch.

This is a wild hope, but does anybody have such a punch that he
doesn't use any longer?  Hope, hope, hope.
