Yes, the little squares were what I have used before, they're pre-holed to
make it easy to realign overtop. That si what I am looking to source,
ideally comercially-produced if they exist. ASR 33 use.
I'd be happy with a small qty if anyone has these for sale or trade. Maybe
I will ask green keys list, just thought of that, doh! Someone there might
be able to help.
Regarding the tape in question I do have a previously-punched backup tape
for "everyday" use, I do not plan to actually use the ripped original
unless there is no other choice. I just want to repair it for archival
