    They look like they're 3 inches. I won't know until it arrives. I copied the pics from the Ebay listing.

    Anyone know where I can get tape for it?

    I know. It's more of a curio than studio gear. I'll still find some trippy uses for it though.

    Cool little recorder, diggy!

    I'm not sure where you could get 3" reels of tape any more but I would guess someone on ebay will offer some up eventually!

    Cheers!

    Yeah...just keep your eyes out for more reels and then you can always get larger panckes or reels and spool them off onto the 3" reels.

    I have a few 3" reels that contain audio letters from my older sister (w/ grandma) to parents (U. S. Navy must have been living somewhere else) I listened to them once on a Sony I had, can't remember the speed, (the Sony was 3 speed, 7.5 the fastest and I'm guessing these were 1 7/8 ) and I don't have the Sony deck anymore. If you can find some reels, one or two 7" reels of Ampex 641 ought to be just right to spin down.

    Cool!
