Many thanks Paul for the explanation which saves me a lot of money (which I can spent now on new TP tapes) because I will stay with the 2mm heads.
Thanks for the TP Forum and the love for good music.
PS. I somebody needs a instruction or service manual of the Nagra T (in PDF) they can get if for free from me for personal use.
Kind regards from Belgium.

I'm very happy to say that I own now a Nagra T too (Nagra NTA 3TCR).  I bought the machine a month ago but I waited to use it till I had an appointment with Nagra France (I live in Belgium about 4 hours driving from Paris).  Yesterday I was in Paris with my recorder where a lovely person who worked already 30 years for Nagra's technical recording department gave the machine a maintenance and a calibration for the TP tapes : CCIR 38cm/s for RMG SM468 (with the TP alignment/calibration tape).  Nagra could tell me when the machine was bought and if it had a service before.  The latter wasn't the case and Nagra could show me where someone other than them did a service. Happy I was when they confirmed after the maintenance (I took the opportunity to visit the palace of Versailles whist the maintenance was carried out because the palace is less than 10 miles away from their offices) that they fixed and adjusted almost everything and that the machine had been used very little.  I post this because I'm extremely happy with Nagra's hospitality and service but also because I have a question :  Nagra said that my machine has heads with a 2mm tracks width which is more for video sound mastering whilst Nagra T's can also be equipped with heads with 2.75mm track width which are better for the purist who does only hifi sound recording and playback, providing our ears can hear the difference.  The 2mm track width has a little loss in dynamics compared to the 2.75mm track width but in their opinion the difference is so small that most people won't hear the difference.

What is the track width on your machine and is it worthwhile to spent the money for new heads (maybe just to have it full option for the audio) ?

Is the Tape Project still alive ?  Since I paid some two months ago I don't hear anything and I get no replies on my emails to Eileen, Dan or Romo. Any reason to become nervous ?
