AMPEX:
 
New:  90 day manufacturer warranty
 
My supplier for the Sony pinch rollers can make ones for Ampex units in rubber.
 
Ampex used two versions on the VPR-6:  One with an Oilite bearing (such as I have listed below) and one with roller bearings.
 
Another supplier has one model of Polyurethane roller for VPR-2B, VPR-80 and VPR-6 as a replacement for Ampex part number 1378726-01, which is the oolite bearing type.

NEW OLD STOCK (NOS)

Sony

The part number A-6035-036-B cross references to Sony BVH-2000 in various source databases.  It is a complete assembly with pinch roller and bearings.

 
The 3-656-909-02 crosses to the BVH-500 and BVH-2000, 2800 and is just the pinch roller without bearings.
 
I have new old stock of both types.  And can supply bearings for the 3-656-909-02 model.

I also have NOS BVU-800/850 and VO-5850 pinch rollers or assemblies.

Other items:

We have some Ampex bearings in plastic tubes. Am working on what those go into.
 
I’m currently going through several parts acquisitions that include BVW series BetacamSP, BVU and VO series Umatic parts to determine what is there.

We’ve found reel tables, BVW-75 timing belts, BVW-75 record and play audio level knobs, a variety of electronic components and mechanical parts.  Taking a while to go through them and sort.

Extender Cards:

We also have a number of extender card sets for BVW-75, several in unopened Sony packaging.  Other extender cards for other Sony and other gear.

Let me know if you’re looking for something.  We may have it. If not, we may be able to source it from our suppliers.

I’m open to making reasonable deals on NOS items for fast, cash sale. 

The NOS upper drums or heads in particular are at a significant discount compared to new item list prices, (where or when last available) and are competitive with refurbished or used when the newness is factored in.  Some at 56% to 80% less than list.  

Considering that many of these items are not now available from Sony, these may be of interest if you’d prefer Sony new parts.

We’ll be adding pictures and more items to this page and shortly, and will have items available for sale through the new Online flashscan8.us Moving Image Tools and Technology Store! So, bookmark this page or contact us using the link below and ask to be notified when the MIT&T Store goes on-line.

Zin! VTR Works has recently supplied a brand-new replacement motor for original equipment on an Ampex AVR-3 Quad VTR.

We can supply other parts including Pinch Rollers for various machines.

We’re taking orders now for a new batch of replacement Ampex Quad pinch rollers, made to Ampex specifications including durometer (hardness/softness) of the rubber.

We’re also working on being able to supply replacements for Sony 3/4″ pinch rollers, which are becoming or have become unobtanium from Sony and other distributors.

We need to build up a large order to make this possible, and to do so at a price that works for folks.

Use the Contact Page link below and tell us what machines you need Pinch Rollers for in the “What other product needs do you have?” box.
 How are your Pinch Rollers doing?

Quick Roller Condition test:

If you take your thumbnail and push into the rubber of the roller, it should go in, but when you pull your thumbnail away the indentation should disappear.

If it doesn’t disappear, the rubber is too soft. If you can’t make an indentation, it’s too hard.

How will ZinRollers be different from what else you may find?  Ken advises:

These would be of the proper durometer so that the tape can make a slight depression in the rubber.

That allows the roller to contact the capstan shaft above and below the tape so that the tape is moved by the pinch roller contacting the back side of the tape… rather than the capstan shaft driving the recorded surface of the tape as happens when the roller is too hard.

Correct durometer as noted above helps avoid tape slippage and video errors, increased capstan roller pressure, additional wear on bearings, etc.

These replacement rollers would be ground to final specifications with new bearings installed, so that the results are concentric and the correct diameter so you won’t have issues with flutter or speed.

These rubber rollers stay cleaner longer than replacements made from materials such as polyurethane that may be available.  Ken tried polyurethane rollers in customers machines (in one case, a large duplication facility) and heard complaints that operators were having to stop work to clean the poly rollers about every fourth tape. Not good, especially on cassette-based units.

Ken supplied and installed rubber pinch rollers, which resolved the problem and gave significantly longer times between the need to clean the rollers.

As you may know, Polyurethane is used to make Particle Transfer Rollers (PTRs) used on film transfer equipment to do exactly that… transfer particulate matter like dust off the film and onto the roller. We sell those for use with film scanners.

New video heads or assemblies may be available from some manufacturers.

flashscan8.us is also an authorized representative for Videomagnetics, which is the world’s last rebuilder of 2″ Quad VTR head assemblies, and supplies refurbished upper drums and scanners for a range of broadcast 1″, 3/4″, Betacam/BetacamSP/Digital Betacam and Panasonic DVCPro recorders.
