Description

Object is a pair of the metal blades that contact the trailing edge of a punched card as it is pushed from the hopper into the card path. Identical parts are visible in the feed area of the collator in which these were found. This pair was clearly replaced because the tiny edge that pushes on the edge of the card is worn down.
