Lately I've been recapping and rebuilding my Revox PR99 MKIII reel to reel that I've used for several years. It's a great machine for recording on open reel. Many years ago I had a Pioneer RT-707 that I really enjoyed. Very compact and the sound was fantastic. I had bought dozens of prerecorded tapes which I still have. Unfortunately the reel to reel had developed a problem and years ago I sold it. I always wish I had kept it. My Revox is a 2 track and only plays at 7 1/2 and 15 IPS so the prerecorded tapes were just stored away. The other day I bought this RT-707 locally. I was very interested not only because of the great price, but it had very little use and not a single scratch on the face. I bought it from a person who was cleaning out his father's estate. He remembers him using it for a very short time and then replacing it with a large reel machine. He had forgotten about it until he went through a closet in his fathers house. It was in the original box, packing and plastic and had sat for decades. The heads look brand new. The insides and all metal work look brand new as it was stored in it's large heavy original plastic bag. There wasn't even any dust on it inside or out! Everything works except for the counter, which I'm guessing needs a new belt. Unfortunately the person threw out the original box last week as it had a tear on one side! I did get the packing and plastic protective cover. I even offered to go through his recycle trash for the box but it had gone 2 days before I bought it. There are a couple other items such as a metal reel, owners manual and accessories that he's going to send me as he misplaced them in the confusion of emptying out the house. Only things I have done was to demag and clean the heads. Because the playback recordings sound as good as the source, I'm going to wait to do any recapping and only replace any capacitors that have to be changed. I'll remove the face plate and lube anything that moves when I change out the belt. Anyone have tips on what should be lubed and any caps that have to be changed out?
