Time recorders, also called time clocks or punch clocks, are available from manufacturers, retailers or second-hand auction sites. Customers may purchase them directly from a manufacturer such as Lathem, from a retailer such as Office Depot or Zuma Office Supply or from a specialty retailer such as Time Clock Express.
Auction sites such as eBay may list time recorders, though the selection varies from day to day. Time recorders can vary widely in features and price. Budget models may have a small capacity, while the highest-end models can maintain saved settings in the event of a power outage, prevent misprints and keep time to the one-hundredth of the hour.
