Hmmm... the pictures don't look like shedding to me. It looks like
stripping. I've seen tape do this when the tape manufacturer's slitter
is mis-set or goes off spec. Then the first guide on the reproducer
strips off the offending extra width because the tape will be slightly
too wide to fit through the guide. This can be especially prevalent on
high tape tension machines.
