"Subject: [ARSCLIST] CBS News on LOC efforts to preserve video history

Question about one "fact" stated in the story, by an LOC employee -- there is really only one guy who works on the heads for Ampex 1" machines, and he's in his 80s? 
-- Tom Fine"

My take on this is that perhaps the "one guy" should be working with someone that has the technical expertise to learn the ins and outs of the Ampex 2" quad VTR plus, isn't a company like JRF Magnetic Services able to recondition VTR quad heads?

Or, this site lists a number of companies that still do 2" quad work:
