Cassette Tape housings

Postby obutcher » Thu Dec 04, 2014 11:46 am

Hi all,

I'm on the hunt down for some cassette tape housings, or tapes that are able to be pulled open and put back together again easily so I can transfer the actual tape and reels into a non-broken enclosure. I've got a lot of old tapes that need to be fixed up and any tips or advice would go a long way. I'm looking for something pretty reliable but I'm not sure where to start! Most of the things that come up with a google search are iphone cases or similar.

Cheers

Cheers Chris, I was ready to go that route, but it looks like I've got this sorted now. If anyone else needs to know for future, Peter at www.casstape.com.au sells blanks called 'C-Zero Blank Cassettes' for only $0.85 each. Designed to be unscrewed and put back together again easily. :)
