Yes, Dean the use of the packing tape form the shipping dept. is indeed
but all this -laying out of tape on the film bench sounds laborious. I have an
roller mounted on the wall next to the telecine. I just mount the PTR on that
take a strip from the tape dispenser mounted next to the roller and wiz away
nasty dirt, much like shining shoes.

I love this! I gotta ask the boss for a dishwasher!! :-) But I am suprised the
of the PTR's never came out with a $2000. gizmo to clean these things quickly.
