  1. can l get some info on my cassette model 3554 mcs series JCP.the heads are locked in the up position cant put a tape in.


    1. Lenny — Yes i do sell the R2R machines as well as repair them. I have about 100 units and gradually work on them and then sell them. What are you looking for… something to play your old tapes, maybe?


  2. My name is Bud. Ihave a 1969 Akai 1800SD that needs going over, refurbishing. What do you think? Ph. 540.576.1073


    1. Hi Bud — Thanks for the note. Depending on a number of factors (like head wear, parts availability etc) IMHO it probably would not be cost-effective to refurbish an 1800SD. A machine of that era would need new rubber (belts, pinch roller) and a complete tear-down, cleaning out of old grease, re-lubrication, as well as all the settings to be tweaked. Easily can run into hours of work, I’m sorry to say. Sometimes (if you cannot do it yourself) it’s best just to upgrade to a newer machine that has already been refurbed. But if you want to go ahead with the work, it is up to you of course.
