"A pin with a handle"

Some useful items invented in this country are manufactured here to this very day. The Moore Push-Pin Co. still exists. If one were to draw conclusions about the national economy extrapolated from how things work here in Austin, the conclusion would be that tattoo artists barter for massages and hair stylists barter for bicycle repairs and so forth and so forth. The Push-Pin people also have a related business, SpeedCount, an electronic counting and batching system for packaging small, odd-shaped items.
