  1. I am desperate to fix a very old csetaste tape and am willing to be patient and learn. I have looked at some videos and written instructions with pictures. My question is: How do you secure the tape to the empty end of the reel so it won’t pop off again when it gets to the end of the tape?? Thank you.

  2. Didn’t know the forum rules allowed such brilliant posts.
