GOOD Part Suppliers

Every once in a while there is a gifted person out there that takes it upon himself to help us Technicians and DIY hobbyist to fix their decks by making available parts that are very hard to find. This Fellow I talk about here is Marian. He has a web site that has many great products and if you are working on a tape deck, you are best advised to at least look around his site to see if he has a part you are looking for. I have purchased from him for the Sony WM-D6C and it is great to get parts that are just what we need.

I highly recommend you go check out this resource of parts-

    1. This age of unit might not be worth the cost of replacing the belts. Technicians do not work for $8.00/Hr like when these were made and so putting $200 into a deck like this might not be practical.
      Contact Alex in MI to see if he will take it on. Often times the places where you will find people that are not so busy is start up service shops. Most shops that have been open for years are overloaded with equipment like mine is.

      1. Hi Sam — Thanks for the referral (exchanged emails with this fellow, but he shied away when it came to the bottom line). People coming into these situations just don’t understand this is not the seventies anymore! We simply cannot work for next-to-nothing with all that has been invested. By way of example, just have a 40-50 year old car worked on and see what it costs! You really have to love that car (or tape deck).
