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 ride.
