Question about Tape Decks
I would also like a diagram on how to thread a reel to reel. Thank you.
Depending on which brand of recorder you have, most do have a general threading scheme. As you are facing the unit, the supply (full) reel would be on the your left and the take-up (empty) would be to the right. Position the supply reel so that the leader end of the tape will be on the outside. Pull the tape end around the shut off sensor lever so that it moves freely. Now pull the tape leader between the rubber pinch roller and capstan (in the case the unit has dual capstans). If it has a single roller on the right side, pull the tape between the heads and then between the roller/capstan. If unit has dual shut off sensor levers, pull tape around this sensor as you did the first, making sure it moves freely. Then thread the tape leader into the take-up reel slot. Press play. Both reels should turn counter clockwise.
