I have a similar playback device that uses 8.5x11 sheets of magneically 
coated material.  It plays back with an arm that rotates with a head at the 
nd.  It was a message repeater.

No one ever brought in a job for it so I never tried getting it to work.

Good seing you again, however briefly.  You misse done hell of a carousel
