I can usually get these to work unless the tape itself is seriously
deteriorating.  It takes about a half hour or so to fix.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Failed Cassette surgery

I have an audio cassette that had seized up and wouldn't play which I
in a new shell. Apparently the shell wasn't the problem and my efforts
actually made matters considerably worse. Now I have a badly packed tape
has also torn off the leader. Rather than further mangle it, I give up and
would like to know who out there has the facilities to salvage this tape (or
at least attempt to). It's content is mostly unique archival material from
own collection of off-the-air and live performances from other sources and I
really do not want to give up on this one.
