Today, I was asked whether there was a tool available that would automate some of this work. I allowed as to how there was, but we would actually have to buy it and getting software approved in our organization can be a long and tedious process. There was also the possibility that it wouldn't work particularly well.
On the other hand, I have been doing a lot of typing.
So we're looking into getting the mechanical converter.
And if we get it, we'll see how it does. :)
