Hmmmm....time to put the Pioneer CTF-750 and CTF-1050 back in service. Maybe I could make a stack on the same rack as the Pioneer RT 909 reel to reel.
Do you use your 909 regularly? Done any work on it?
I have two although one was damaged in shipping.
I have done the tape roller and drive belt relacements on one of mine, that is all. But I don't use it regularly mostly due to space issues.
In theory I know how to do it, and I even have silicone of the proper density, but I've been chicken - for years - to actually do it.
I hate working on the mechanics of tape decks (and also old-school record changers)! :( There is so much potential energy stored up inside those contraptions in the form of springs, spring clips, etc., and so many itty-bitty yet mission-critical parts inside of them that, invariably, some small but important thing sproings out of an assembly in the midst of disassembly* with enough kinetic energy/velocity as to either achieve escape velocity from earth's gravitational pull and/or to create a small local black hole and disappear over the event horizon thereof.
Maybe this just happens to me.
* This not even being the rapid unscheduled kind frequently employed by SpaceX. ;)
all the best,
I do not. It has to be refurbished. I will get to it sometime in the near future.
