Please forgive the cross posting
I am transferring a few thousand tapes recorded on Ampex 478 from 1998.
Although baking has cured the sticky shed problem (after 16 hours
though), I am facing a problem of the black backing guncking up the
transport. It is a big menace. Does anyone have experience with this
problem? Is there a machine out there like the RTI Tapechek line that
cleans the tape prior o playing? We are going through tons of cleaning
materials and losing many hours on it.
