Abstract

A number of information services produce bulletins of abstracts and similar material by typing a stencil and stitching the sheets together with an ordinary office stapling machine. This is a tedious, fatiguing and time‐consuming operation, but if badly done can ruin the appearance of a duplicated document. Enquiries among a number of bulletin producers and makers of wire stitching machines showed that no attempt has apparently been made to devise an easier and quicker method, and a small gadget was therefore constructed. This has been in use in the Metal Box Research Division for some months, and is greatly appreciated by the typist. Several visitors have commented approvingly on it, and a short description may be of wider interest.
