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.

I have the same problem with a broken gear for the tape drive to play. Do you have or know where to find a part number or dimension for this gear? Have you had any luck trying to find one? My deck is like new but needs this gear. Thanks.

re: RT-3388A

Mine has the failed rubber/plastic sleeve that goes over the capstan that deteriorated years ago. If yours is playing fine you may be one of the few lucky ones. I've tried to fabricate one before and it worked for a little while but alas it just sits. If I knew the dimensions maybe using a 3D printer would work but what material to use. If you or anyone else knows the dimensions and what material to use I would greatly appreciate being able to use this machine again. If I figure it out I'll post the solution here.
