I've used one of the Univac keypunches when the 029 was still the
workhorse. Interesting in that you entered the data for a whole card,
then punched it all at once. I didn't much care for it as it lacked
the resounding "clunk" of the 029 as you typed.
In the case of the one I used, it was used as a remote punch/reader for
a CDC 1700 setup.
