    Are the little protruding "tape readers" on the edges of the DAT/VCR
    HEAD Glued on or Soldered on Etc.?????

    Since I think manual cleaning of DAT/VCR Heads are the cleanest and
    most efficient, they would alter the chemistry of the Glued on little
    *protruding "tape readers"*......which would explain a few things...

    The makers would probably prefer the term "bonded" to glued.
    They,VCR ones anyway, are positioned in a X,Y,Z sense to an accuracy of
    better than 1 micron IIRC.

  4. Normal cleaning won't damage the glue.

    So I will refrain from using the Acetone except in lost cause
    situations when all the repeated use of all the other solutions produce no
    results....

    I have rescued a few DAT/DDS/VCR heads that way, but it's delicate
    work but used in Floppies takes a paper/no plastic disk cleaner ....works a
    lot if you find a paper floppy cleaner....adds an extra couple of years of
    use....like the DAT/DDS/VCR heads....but accidents do happen.......

    I figured they'd be bonded like the 120 layers of a Travan Tape
    Streamer head.....I use a lot of tape and drives....14 of them...no use in
    changing the procedure for backups...since it's what I have, unless I wanna
    backup or off-drive and try to put a laser disk in a Tape drive.....

    Some people do backups on the parallel port of to a VCR using
    Backer32 or similar...I think a full tape only holds 5 MB since it is analog
    and only writes to the top video layer.

    Thanx for the nfo...
