Cotton Tip Cleaning Swabs


Pack of extra-long cleaning swabs (6" length, wooden stick).   Use with isopropyl or denatured alcohol.  The long length makes these perfect for those hard-to-reach areas in cassette decks, VCRs and CD or DVD players.  Use on audio heads, CD/DVD lasers, rollers, guides and other devices in the tape path.  Important note:    Cotton swabs are not designed to be used on video heads, and using these swabs on a video head can easily damage the head.  May be safely used on parts of a VCR other than the video head.

HD-880 Video/Audio
Head Demagnetizer


Video heads, audio heads, capstans, and metallic guides can become magnetized from repeated use.   The resulting magnetic field on these parts results in a very slight erasure of a tape each time you play it.  Over time, this degrades the quality of the video and audio. The HD-880 demagnetizer will remove this magnetism.   Plug the demagnetizer into an AC outlet. Place the tip close to the head or guide and use a slight rotary motion to cover the entire surface area of the head. Slowly withdraw the demagnetizer to a distance of approximately 18 inches from the head, and then unplug the demagnetizer.  (Note:  Do not use around video or audio tapes - the demagnetizer can partially erase recorded tapes when it is plugged in.)

Head demagnetizer designed for 110V AC.
