Wanted: tape deck part for +2

Post by system11 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:28 pm

Long shot but does anyone happen to have any +2 (grey older type) tape deck parts or completely ruined computers? I need a plastic gear from the play mechanism, the one on the other side of the pulley for the second belt - just one screw releases the sprung arm/pulley/gear.

Have you considered 3D printing the part ?

Regardless, a picture of the wanted part, might help your quest

there are quite a few grey +2 'Spares or Repairs' on eBay for about £10. I realise £10 is bit much for a single plastic cog, but, it's always worth having a +2 lying about for other spares.

Maybe worth contacting Dataserve Retro and Sintech as well.

my seconds suggestion, check out "lost foam casting"
make an aluminium repica from beer cans, sand and a blowtorch!
