GIMMICK, if you want to call it that, has nothing in common with existing number-switching pads aside from their basic function. But it has, as you will discover in performance, enormous advantages, since the preparation can be accomplished within seconds, and the operation is easy and completely natural in handling. The pad I use is a common one that can be found in any stationery or school supplies department. It has a multicolored cardboard cover, measures three inches by four-and-a-quarter inches and contains sheets of cheap, unlined, opaque paper, bound at the top. I'm sure similar pads can be easily found in your area.
