  1. I want to measure back-tension and forward-tension of my Betamax
    recorder. More info here: Does
    anyone know where I could buy one of these? Thanks
  2. I have a Betamax tension cartridge which I want to hang onto, but
    don't overlook using a fish gauge on a dismantled tape. This can give
    pretty good results though you have too fool the microswitches and for
    some tests the rotation sensor into thinking a tape is present and
    spooling. Actually, holding the microswitch and spinning the unloaded
    reel by hand will do this while feeding or pulling the tape and fish
    gauge to/from the reel under test.
