Default Re: Ferrograph 4S Tape Recorder

When I first inspected a Ferro 5 with the view to purchasing it, the owner showed me how he got the capstan motor to turn after engaging play. He lifted up the deck plate, gave the motor fan a spin and it sprang into life. I bought the machine and the first thing I did when I got it home was oil top and bottom motor bearings. From that time on, the motor never missed a beat.
