    Source for blank paper tape roles used on NC machines?

    Im looking for a source of blank paper tape roles uses on NC/CNC machines. This is the 1-inch wide style, preferably black or dark for use in optical reader and punch machines.

    Re: Source for blank paper tape roles used on NC machines?

    If it is any help, many years ago, when our tape punch packed up, we got a board made up (1 chip and a couple of resistors, very cheap) to connect to an old computer via a parallel port. Worked a lot better than the old tape ever did.

    Our old Strippit fc1000's just ended up with old pc's connected with printer cables.
