Hello all, one of the hobbies that carried over from my days as a firefighter is collecting vintage and restoring vintage radios and associated equipment. I have three of the early Instructograph Code trainers with the spring wound motor drives and I just received an almost pristine AC motor drive model from 1966. This model uses a metal cone on the motor shaft to vary the speed of the tape. The cone rests against a drive wheel made of what appears to be leather pads.The motor is raised and lowered to vary the speed at which the wheel rotates. Apparently the tape drive shaft had not been lubricated and a previous owner had allowed the motor to sit and spin and the cone wore a place out in the drive wheel. does anyone know of a source for replacement parts for these old Instructographs? Thanks and 73's Robert/ Km4ORN
