And these guys have 5" repair kits, and fairly detailed measurements and stuff to ensure proper fit:

If you dig a little deeper, they also have rubber surrounds:

You might want to consider making the relationship a little more formal, too. Who will sign the lease? What happens if one side or the other wants out? There are a couple of obvious arrangements, and about a zillion other ways to structure things. The terms would include who insures what. It could b...

This definitely seems like it's on the right track. Disclaimer: I'm very technologically challenged - it's safe to assume that I know absolutely nothing about electronics. Can you control plugin parameters in Pro Tools with MIDI controllers? And is that how this would interface, or would it be via ...

Teensy 2.0 with a pot, slider or rotary encoder (+optional LED ring).

If you turn the regen all the way up, it should run away at almost any speed. You say you reloaded it with "blank" 8-track tape? If your blank tape was like the stuff I tried, it doesn't work very well. I'd have to check to be sure, but the "blank" 8 tracks I found had a greyish tape inside, while t...

Ditto Djimbe's notes. I run mine with a 20 dB pad on the input, and bump the output back up with a mic preamp - usually an API 512C. I use old 8-tracks for tape. I had poor luck with "blank" 8-track tapes - I think the ones I found were low-bias. I get the cleanest looking (hopefully least-worn) one...

There's sorta a triage hierarchy for controls that seem to be dirty. If they're just simply dirty, or they've been sitting unused for a long time, and exercising them a bit clears up the problem, that's a reasonable course of action. If they don't clear up, you can try cleaners...which is a potentia...

I don't know of any source for new ones.

Long ago, the trick to manually winding a tape was to use a Bic pen. They were just the right size.

It might also be a candidate for a 3D printed part.

Even so, it's still somewhat unclear which part you're looking for.

Do you want

A: the circular thingy inside the cassette that the tape winds around, with the 6 little teeth on the interior opening?

or

B: the pointy thing that's part of the player, that interfaces with said 6 little teeth?

If you're doing multiple shots & angles, be sure to check/set the white balance on each camera. There's a color discontinuity between the opening/closing wide shot versus some of the other shots. In the opening, the back wall is almost peach, in other shots it's a greenish yellow. A gray card or a c...

If you've got a naked playback head, try googling for "tape head preamp". Opamp labs have a few schematics: http://opamplabs.com/products/opamp-amps-magnetic-tape.html There's also a section of the National Semi Audio/Radio Handbook with a handful of designs...mostly a single opamp and some passives...

My "daily driver" scope is a Tek TDS2024c, a modest 4-channel digital scope.

The only time I ever hit Autorange is by accident, when I'm hunting for features buried in the menus. Sometimes it's an OK starting point, but it's not a substitute for actually knowing how the machine works.

Cannon sell longish rods:

I'm not totally sure of the thread, though. Are the nuts in the lugs removable, such that you could swap them out, if needed?
