Nifty device on ebay for machine steno

I never thought about it before, but the tapes from pre-computer steno machines are probably hard to hold down while transcribing. This is a holder for the tapes. It looks like the tape is about 2 inches wide, fan-folded in 8 inch sections. Really, really rough guesses as to the measurement.
