I recently picked up a magnecord 748 which was originally a 1/4 track tape recorder from around 1960.

When I received it, I found it had been fitted with half track heads. Does anybody know of a source to get heads for these older Magnecords?

I have the Nortronics replacement numbers, but I think you had the choice of 1/2 or 1/4 track stock . Maybe you can find a close substitute on e$bay. Reply if you want the numbers to look out for .

If you could send me placement numbers for the quarter track heads, that would be much appreciated. As you likely know, the heads look quite unique and different from other tape recorders but maybe that's just a casing around the head?
