Although not considered professional recording equipment per se, Scully
also manufactured a line of automation bi directional playback
machines.They would accomodate a 14 inch reel if I recall correctly.

It's not that puzzling to me. They only had around a five year heyday
40 years ago in maybe a hundred US music recording studios. Scullys had
mostly been replaced by Ampex and 3M 2" machines by the time recording
studios became a common part of popular culture. Everybody had to build
their own one-off recording consoles back then too and we see very
little about this on the web.
