Default Reel to reel tape recorder repairs needed please

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could help? I collect vintage audio such as reel to reel recorders, and also cassette recorders, ghetto blasters etc etc. However, I am completely blind, and although I have learnt to carry out simple belt replacement on some cassette recorders, there are many repairs that I am not able to do. I really don't know where to start with repairing a reel to reel, and at the moment, I don't have a single working machine! I have a lot of tapes that I'd love to be able to see what's on them too! I live in Bristol, so if there's anyone in or near Bristol that could help that would be amazing. However, if there's somebody a little further away, I would be happy to post a machine to you to repair if that's the only way of getting something repaired.

Look forward to hopefully hearing from someone.

Thank you very much,
Tim
