new metal reel spacers available
« on: June 11, 2008, 02:11:59 PM »
Jeff Jacobs helped me out with getting some replacement rubber spacers made to go behind the hub adapters when using NAB hub metal reels on a Technics machine. These spacers are laser cut from an admittedly not too attractive but very functional translucent yellow rubber that is the same thickness as the original black ones. They should work great on Otari MX-5050s too, being within about .001" of the thickness of the Otari spacers I have measured. They don't show when a reel is in place so I don't find the yellow color to be much of an issue myself. I only have ten pair in stock at the moment. Price is $25 per pair, plus postage. Call Eileen at 360-697-1936 if you would like to purchase a pair.
