re: RT-3388A

Thanks for providing me with a manual for this cassette deck. It's a nice one I inherited from family and never knew how to properly use it. I've been told that these have a very weak drive gear for the tape drive and I hope this one is still good. They should have made them out of nylon instead of this red plastic stuff. I know of several of these machines where they have failed and there is no place to get this little gear, at least none that I know of.
