Why of course. Pretty obvious to me
Did it many times.
Preferably one with a new eraser on it
Since pencils are not what they once were, it's Bic ballpoints now.
When I'd record an entire album on a tape I used to take the tapes apart and cut them down to album length so the sides matched the record.
Bic for sure, if unplayable after that, out the car window it goes!
Really? You condone and practice littering?
I actually carved a custom stick back in the day. Used that stick for decades.
3M had a nice little pen-sized tool that had a hex end for rewinding, a splicing block molded in the side of it, and the end screwed off and revealed a chamber with a couple dozen pre-cut cassette-width splicing tape bits within. I have one somewhere... Probably with my 1/4" block.
Wasn't there a show like "antiques road show" that used to present old and obscure tools and explain what the were used for? Your tool would be a good candidate!
Wait, "your tool" sounds weird, but I'm gonna go with it anyway.
That is probably the best way to get rid of crappy cassettes. That and empty beer bottles and cigarette butts. Duh.
Hahaha, those were the days. I still remember when my car stereo spat out ribbons of a mixed tape, sadly no amount of pencils could have fixed that I was lucky I didn't crash the car.
Oh yeah! Done that a few times.
I guess this now officially puts me in the "old mans' club"?!
Think I need a nap now...
I preferred my pinkie finger. It's just the right size to get in the hub and turn!
Usually a Dixon Ticonderoga #2. In a pinch, a large wooden chopstick that is square will also do.
I used to use a little screwdriver. (Not the drink).
I used a Venus Velvet 2h.
