Teflon belt for any, (car), cassette player, diy.

Finally found a way to make belts for the old cassette players/recorders, (and for any other use), derived from the common plumbers teflon tape.

If the tension is adjusted properly, (making the belt a little shorter), it works perfectly and, (it seems), for ever, being imperishable.

Not for high fidelity though, (I suppose), albeit, by adding working hours, wow & flutter looks as if it is reduced continuously.

Having a very low friction coefficient it looks strange how nicely teflon belt delivers motor's power to the rollers and to the capstan, making them almost unstoppable by the fingers.  


With 200 hours for break-in, (3 days operating continuously).
