A story about a minor writing error with – literally – major consequences.
Last month I wanted to replace my old circular shaped punches. Since I have a knee-lever-press, I have replaced some of my old punches by modern ones (read more about this press in one of my earlier blog posts). The two punches I wanted to order this time, have a diameter of 32 MM and 35 MM. Sizes I often use for personalised tags for bags and zipper pouches.
So I mailed my supplier and asked him to make new ones for me.This ordering by mail I have been doing for years now, and always works perfect. Only this time I am afraid I was already thinking about my coming wintersport holiday, and instead of MM, I wrote CM behind the number.
