In any case, if manusl needs the info about the pins jack and where the wires go Originally Posted by sweetbeats. The Fostex machines seem to live in the shadows a bit which is too bad, and I think a lot of it is simply related to parts availability and user community support.

I have an electronics shop near me with a whole isle of the things and someday I mean to take a couple belts there and see if I can find a match.

OK, guys, I was spinning the g8 today, Also had to tighten up the brakes a bit. Also it has a pretty servics pin connector.


Rep points on the way! So if the capstan belt starts slipping, what does one do? I fixed couple reel-to-reel machines, few cassette decks and even couple cd-players simply by going through my junk box and finding a belt that fits.

Once again the good Doc has outdone himself.

Those pulleys are an unfortunate weak-point on these machines. I’ll put this info out on the web-page too when ever I get time.

I’m looking to get foxtex R8 and the info you have will be invaluable. Went through fixing a very popular problem with R8 – cracked plastic pulleys If it’ll fail some day I’ll sure let you know and then will have to try something different The time now is I remember a thread some time back about somebody working through getting this fixed and I think they finally got it but how many more are out there?

So the bonds on the pulleys hold well so far. I has few ideas about how to implement long cord for the control unit, as it’s pretty hard to find that special Fostex extension cable.

Too damn bad that it’s not built of solid heavy metal And they have some neat, unique and handy features. I have no clue about options I’d guess if you find or can custom order a flat rubber belt of the same size you’ll be OK.

I was also tracing the wires from the control unit jack to the control board and got it all figured. I really have no clues though. Originally Posted by ofstex.

Just curious as to the options.

Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for that site man!!!! But that’s how I do most of “repair” g8, but I can’t recommend this to anybody I’m not a “certified specialist” and ain’t got no licence no permit granted from the agency Enter your search terms Submit search form.

Kudos to you for putting some needed attention and support to these machines and their users. Knowledge is calculable, Ignorance has no limits. Have a third party company create a new belt from the same specs?
