It’s a very cool machine. Manuaal 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 Thanks so much for that site man!!!! I has few ideas about r88 to implement long cord for the control unit, as it’s pretty hard to find that special Fostex extension cable.

I’ll put this info out on the web-page too when ever I get time.

I remember a thread some time back about somebody working through getting this fixed and I think they finally got it but how many more are out there? The time now is I really have no clues though.

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. In any case, if anybody needs the info about the pins jack and where the wires go 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.


Rep points on the way!

OK, guys, I was spinning the machine today, Also had to tighten up the zervice a bit. Also it has a pretty unique pin connector. Once again the good Doc has outdone himself. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: So the bonds on the pulleys hold well so far.

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. And they have some neat, unique and handy features.

Those pulleys are an unfortunate weak-point on these machines. Just curious as to the options. Have a third party company create a new xervice from the same specs? If it’ll fail some day I’ll sure let you know and then will have to try something different
