Thanks Corey, yes I've seen the windscreen blade sections and I think
there might be a small tray as well to catch any drips but I dont
plan to go that far at the moment.
The aim is very short tape runs to assess the benefit of the
lubrication film to reduce stick/slip against spacing losses. Very
hard to find reports from people apart from Marie who have tried
it but I was just reading this article which does mention such a
A how to for wet replay when digitising degraded audio tape for
preservation. - DAMsmart Their problem tapes were a batch of 3M 175
tapes so I will see if I have any of those on hand.Cheers, Tim.
