Hi, Eric,

I had a great success at the suggestion of Friedrich Karl Engel to used 
a closed container with water in the bottom and the tape suspended 
above. In 24 hours, a late-1930s Carbonyl Iron tape went from being like 
a carpenter's tape measure to a satin ribbon.

This technique did not work well with a tape that spent two Vermont 
winters behind a wood stove. Part of the problem with that tape was 
edge-melt, however.

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
