My ancient Nakamichi ‘Dragon’ cassette deck. (Remember them ?) Still running to original specification decades and decades later. I’m lucky though in knowing an audio tech who understands the messy, complicated interiors. And no, he doesn’t want any more of them on his repair bench. I had the sense to buy a spare transport mechanism along with the original machine. If you can find one, even a working second hand transport, they’re often absurdly expensive.
I’d post a pic of the ancient old beast but forum rules don’t allow for images until we’ve made a silly number of posts. I’ve never understood the need for such a rule.

And I’m always hoping to stumble across a low usage version of this little beauty at a garage sale.
