Hi All,

 

I have an issue with the slip clutch on a cassette deck take up pulley. The felt disk type.

 

 

I have tried a few things to make a replacement but it is still not great and slips too easily causing some tapes to jam.

 

Anyone have any suggestions on what is the best material to make a replacement slip clutch from?

 

Many thanks

Are you sure it’s not a slipping belt or tire? It’s not usually an issue that take up real has issues with the clutch.

Hi Baddboybill,

Thanks for the reply. I am pretty sure its not the belt as I hae replaced all of those, but you have made me think, so will certainly double check.

 

thanks
