Wood block with velour to hold 1-inch 8-track to the play head with one hand while pushing on the pinch roller with the other to keep the tape moving. 3M 201 (acetate) stored in damp basements, horrible waving edge on track 1 -- the main tracks were 1-2-3 with some additional stuff on 4 & 5. The tape looked like the top edge of a flag in the breeze whipping back and forth as it went by, sometimes even contacting the heads. No photos available (no more hands to take the picture).
