re: M-10W

I have two M-10 and they will not hold 10 inch reels, what is the deal. Many sites say they hold 10 inch reels.

re: M-10W

Hi hdbimages, I have a 10 inch reel adapter kit for the M-10 that is brand new still in the original box. Let me know if you are interested.

re: M-10W

I don't own an M-10, but according to the service manual the 10.5" reel adaptors are an 'optional accessory', otherwise the machine takes a maximum 7" reel.
