I receive emails asking where to find "Service" for Reel to Reels.  I recommend finding a retired TV repair man.  They serviced these recorders over the years.  You can tell them about my site and this page for parts. Do a internet search for a Antique Radio Club in your area.  They often have retired TV service people in their membership.

I am often ask where to find belts.  I make my round belts with "O" ring stock from the auto supply store and glue the ends with superglue.  The "Flat" slip belts, used for forward and rewind, use bra strap from the fabric store. (it works!) Sew the ends together. (or glue them)

I get questions about lubing the old machines to make them work.  light oil from the hardware store and sometimes WD-40 works.  Be careful to not OVER lube.  The best job is to disassemble the drive wheels from the shafts and clean the old dried up lube stuff with alcohol before applying the new lubricant..

Remember: your old tube reel to reel recorder operates with hundreds of volts within it's circuits.  Make sure the power is un-plugged and safe before getting inside the case.

I have some parts sources listed above and VM parts source below.  Don't forget auctions on ebay.  I recently won a auction for a P-P audio output transformer for a 1955 Webcor .
