10.5 Reels

Just a feeler as I'm not sure if I'm actually getting this RTR.

The one I'm looking at does not come with reels, thankfully it has the hubs.

I have plenty 7" reels but no 10.5's.

If anyone has a couple they might be willing to sell down the road, let me know.

Much appreciated.

David

    Do you "just" want a take up reel or do you want a reel with tape on it -- or both?

    Take up reels would be fine for now.

    Actually one with tape on it and one take up reel would be awesome.

    I was ahem curious, too :)

    Pretty sure I can come up with a take up reel for the price of postage (I'm assuming you're somewhere in the US). Most of the tape I have is scratch 'n' dent, so to speak (i.e., recorded tape of questionable provenance). I'd be happy to 'check stock' and send you one if I have some surplus, but it'll be luck of the draw in terms of both tape type & contents :p I would try hard not to send one suffering from SSS*, though.

    I do not have a strategic 10.5 inch tape reserve, unfortunately, so if you're looking for serious start-up supplies, I won't be able to help. :|

    Shoot me a PM if you wish. Always happy to be an enabler -- as much as my resources permit me to! ;)

    There is fresh production tape available that is reputed to be pretty good. Not cheap, but the price is commensurate with the value if one's serious about tape, I'd say.
