Ironically, I bought five Sony 90 minute HF cassettes (5-Brick) from Amazon for $9.68 including shipping before all of you started offering your free ones. It's to finish a job of remastering where the client wanted one CD plus two cassettes of his recording (RtoR). Oh well, my timing hasn't been good lately.

I guess I'll come clean to the whole list.
I was posting for others to get them interested in the tapes as I was afraid they wouldn't draw any interest.
Later in the message, I said I wasn't interested, but I was pointing out that especially screw-shell, but even welded-shell cassettes can be used to salvage tapes whose shells have an issue.
They did find a home or two. I have probably over 100 Maxell new-in-wrap Type II and Type IV cassettes as well as probably over 2000 C-0 shells and that's good for the rest of my time in this business, I suspect.
I probably also have several hundred Maxell tapes made for car playback that I will never use again. I don't know what to do with them as I shouldn't give away the copies of the commercial recordings, and can't give away the copies of private recordings.
