I hope you all enjoy and please whoever built it post the pictures here.
Lardo Boffin, do you have your prototype unit back yet? Have you had a chance to turn it loose on those tapes you can't get to load normally?

Any luck with the PCB gammaray?
Of secondary importance I am saddened that this "project" (a kit so we could all build a working copy of the tape scrubber/dubber) seems to have waned in enthusiasm. I still have and use my 1-off prototype built in the 80's, and wouldn't trade it for a Nakamichi 1000. (Well, okay,... maybe.) It has "recovered" many an "unloadable" tape, and allowed me to dub perfect copies of C90's for friends wholesale without loading to the ZX81. It's a great little toy, but alas I may be doomed to be the only one who knows it. (Sniff.) If anyone wants to send a problematic tape to me here in Canada, I would gladly attempt to process it and return the result. But far nicer to actually have one in the weapons locker,...
