Default Re: Head demagnetizer cassette

Is this the one? I've had this one for decades, bought from a pawn shop. Using it so often for small heads and guides as in cassette decks I got sick of replacing the small button cells so I made a rough mod to run from two AA batteries instead. I never regretted that mod!

It's pretty battered these days. The protective plastic piece on the tip failed long ago so I replaced it with heatshrink.

I tested it recently and felt the decay may now be too fast. I must check the caps and replace if needed. Very handy tool.
