BLANK REELS AND A MANUAL FOR THE RCA REEL MEDIA CENTER?
You can find the manual here: http://web.archive.org/web/20050111070512/http://www.avs.ca/uploaded_files/owner_manuals/841558_reel_media_center_ib.pdf
As for the reels, there are 2 possible solutions:
1: Try to find new old stock reels. The website for Polyconcept
USA (which made the Reel media center) has been down since 2008, so the company may have gone bankrupt.
I found one internet shop that may still have blank reels for sale: www.americanbargain.com/product.asp?productid=7008
2: You can use 1/8" Nagra reels which are still being made, the tape is the same 1/8"(3.175mm) width as the tape used on the Reel Media Center.
The Nagra reels have a different hub, so you will need to improvise and make your own hub adapter.
I found reels like that on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/NAGRA-SN-METAL-REELS-for-SN-SNN-SNS-SNST-10-REELS_W0QQitemZ400026885481QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Electronics_R2?hash=item400026885481&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50
