Subject: [ARSCLIST] Reel to Reel "thing"?
Hi. Can someone give me the term for the little bit of plastic that, if
pushed into a tape reel, holds the loose end a bit more stable. I'm trying
to locate a source of these but the term eludes me and my attempts at
various keyword searches is yielding nearly everything except what I want !
