The time now is Thanks so much for that site man!!!! Fostex R8 belt fkstex The Fostex machines seem to live in the shadows a bit which is too bad, and I manhal a lot of it is simply related to parts availability and user community support. Results 1 to 10 of Have a third party company create a new belt from the same specs? 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 Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.


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 Knowledge is calculable, Ignorance has no limits. 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.

It’s a very cool machine. Kudos to you for putting some needed attention and support to these machines and their users. Also it has a pretty unique pin connector. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: I really have no clues though.

Once fostsx the good Doc has outdone himself. 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. So if the capstan belt starts slipping, what does one do? 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.

I remember a thread some time foste about somebody working through getting this fixed and I think they finally got it but how many more are out there? Rep points on the way! Enter your search terms Submit search form. In any case, if anybody needs the info about the pins jack and where the wires go
