|20140150617||HOLE PUNCH WITH ALIGNMENT INDICATOR - A manually-powered, lever-operated, multi-hole punch device with visual alignment indicia, for punching holes in stacked sheet media such as paper. The hole punch device includes an elongated base with a top side divided along its length in approximate halves, with the front half being a lower flat surface transitioning through a step to a rear half, upper flat surface. The upper flat surface includes a plurality of peninsulas extending into the lower flat surface, such that the areas between the peninsulas include a visual alignment indicator. Punch elements and their punch pins are located on each peninsula overlying the lower flat surface, and the height of the step creates a slot to receive the paper stack. Underneath each punch pin on the lower flat surface is a receiving hole to receive the reciprocating punch pin. An optional chip receptacle is positioned at the underside of the base.||06-05-2014|
