    A number of years ago when I needed to have the some rubber parts
replaced on my 40-year-old DG Nova (PTR capstan and magtape drive
capstan) I used this guy with excellent results:


    Both pieces came back in better shape than I'd ever seen them, and
I'd been familiar with the machine since the mid 1970s.  (The magtape
drive is busted, but that doesn't have anything to do with the capstan,
and I've probably put a few miles of paper-tape through the PTR without
a hiccup.
