Thread: QIC Tape Cartridge Tension Band Replacement - Plastibands!

    Those belts have a lot less elasticity than the QIC bands, and of course seem to last for decades.

    Yeah, I doubt the replacements I'm working on ordering will work as floppy drive belts. I'm sure the company could provide such belts, if there's a real need for them. Someone's got a source for brand-new Amdek CF-2 drives, and they're also pretty cheap, so clearly some company is still willing to run floppy drive belts! Aside from the CF-2 drive in my Amstrad PCW8512, I don't think I've ever had to replace a floppy drive belt.

    Strange but true--I replaced a CF-2 belt with a plastiband. Worked okay when I did it, but can't say much about what shape it's in now.
