It's been a while since I've baked tapes in the oven. I'm about to embark
on a project that involves baking half a dozen Ampex 456 quarter inch tape
on 10.5 inch reels. We have a new kitchen oven that has a dehydrate setting
(130 degrees F) so it seems perfect for the job. However, I notice that my
Trifield Meter indicates that the magnetic field is way over 100
milliGauss. My old oven in which I baked many tapes, probably had the same
reading but I never measured it. I'm not too thrilled subjecting a master
tape to such a strong field. Has anyone else ever measured the magnetic
field of their kitchen or tape baking oven/dehydrator ?
