Where can I buy a Tentelometer?

Hi, I’m looking to buy a Tentelometer. Preferably a T2-H20-ML or T2-H20-1;One that will work for 1/4” to 2” tape with the longer, straight probes. It doesn’t seem like they are made anymore. Any ideas? Any help is much appreciated.

Any luck with finding a Tentelometer?

I've read a discussion about alternatives on tapeheads.

"For tape tension and brake tension, some manuals tell you to wrap a string around a 7" reel and hook a spring scale to the string to measure the tension".

Hi, thanks for the reply. No luck. I called JRF at JRF magnetics. I figured if anyone knew it would be him. He said hey aren't made anymore as far as he knows. I use a spring scale sometimes depending on the machine. However on something like those Tascam 388s where the tape tension is calibrated by adjustment of the tension arms via opto sensors, it's really helpful to have a tentelometer. I guess I'll just have to hope one pops up on eBay.

Check with Coast Recording Equipment Supply in N. Hollywood. They may have one in NOS.
