Interesting Things: Old Tape Player

Went over to my dad’s and we took apart a couple of old tape players to see if we could get one of them working. One needs a new belt and a bit of lubrication. The other though needs a new drive wheel.



What causes that? Metal fatigue?

We then moved on to testing some old radio tubes



and had several old tubes that worked just fine!

Now I’ve got to order a new belt and we should have one working player from the late 50’s that we can use to digitize some family tapes.
