Power cable for a Revox Reel 2 Reel Tape Deck
« on: July 27, 2017, 12:34:37 PM »
Hi All.

Anyone have a power cable for a Revox Reel 2 Reel Tape Deck.  Perhaps from a desk which no longer runs etc.

Would be a rectangular shaped 2 pin kettle plug.

 :pray:

Are you by any chance able to take a photo of the socket into which the power plug fits into?  And the dimensions in mm. It will be easier to identify exactly what is needed then.

You are Not going to find in S.A !

3 options:
a. Order from Europe,
b. Make your own from car body filler,
c. Change the chassis portion to 3-pin IEC as used on computers (very common)
