service manual for fostex R8 needed

And they have some neat, unique and handy features. So if the capstan belt starts slipping, what does one do? So the bonds on the pulleys hold well so far.

But that’s how I do most of “repair”but I can’t recommend this to anybody I’m not a “certified specialist” and ain’t got no licence no fsotex granted from the agency 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.


Thank you so much.
