Just refurbished this model. Well made if you can get your hands on it. Nice to not have to depend on all those rubber idlers and ff/rew wheels. This unit has 2 motors that take care of that. Nice change from cleaning, and dressing vintage tape transport rolling stock. Relay actuated simplicity and the over designed stuff just works, years later. Toughest part was cleaning up dirt/dust/paint/cosmetics. Didn't even lube a lot...it just worked after all these years. Nice treat....find one!!!
