This requires a REAL MACHINE SHOP ... none this 3d
printer stuff. I
would recommend a building a 35mm film punch and reader, as film stock
is still easy to find compared to paper tape. Zuse used them for his
computers in Germany on the 40's. Quality Mechanical stuff is lost high
Consumer-grade CNC stencil cutters are fine at cutting plastic sheet and should be ok with
My ptap2dxf (latest version 1.3) will produce output to cut tapes for 8-level ASCII,
5-level Baudot, 2-level Morse (Wheatstone and
Cable Code), 7-level Whirlwind, Teletype Chadless and some customising options too.
Still some other formats to do such as Colossus etc. Thanks for the notion of making Zuse
tape, will look into it.
