Those pulleys are an unfortunate weak-point on these machines. Kudos to you for putting some needed attention and support to these machines and their users. The Fostex machines seem to live in the shadows a bit which is too bad, and I think a lot of it is simply related to parts availability and user community support.

Just curious as to the options. I have no clue about options I’d guess if you find or can custom order a flat rubber belt of the same size you’ll be OK. I fixed couple reel-to-reel machines, few cassette decks and even couple cd-players simply by going through my junk box and finding a belt that fits. But that’s how I do most of “repair”but I can’t recommend this to anybody I’m not a “certified specialist” and ain’t got no licence no permit granted from the agency If you have a specialty electronics shop in your vicinity that stocks VCR belts you might find something there, or check wwith someplace like Parts Express I have an electronics shop near me with a whole isle of the things and someday I mean to take a couple belts there and see if I can find a match.


Once again the good Doc has outdone manuall. Rep points on the way! OK, guys, I was spinning the machine today, Also had to tighten up the brakes a bit.

So the bonds on the pulleys hold well so far. If it’ll fail some day I’ll sure let you know and then will have to try something different I was also tracing the wires from the control unit jack to the control board and got mnaual all figured.


I has few ideas about how to implement long cord for the control unit, as it’s pretty hard to find that special Fostex extension cable. Also it has a pretty unique pin connector. In any case, if anybody needs the info about the pins jack and where the wires go I’ll put this info out on the web-page too when ever I get time.
