Thanks to Allison for the tip on using rubber hose to
rollers gone to "glue". Worked great. I didn't glue mine to the hub,
though I suppose I should -- one did start slipping some after reading
in 30 tapes -- the aluminum hub got pretty hot. I also found I could be
quite aggressive with isopropyl alcohol cleaning the heads.
Has anyone tried replacing the rollers of old Wangtek drives with bits of
rubber hose? Ideally, I'd like to find an inexpensive source for original
rollers, but I don't currently know of one.
