I am supposed to be getting a TU56 DECtape unit today. I believe
it was functional when it was retired, but it supposedly now has a
grimy film on it.
My plan is to assess its condition, then clean it up. I need
to study the manual and technical drawings, but my question is:
Can I easily test the mechanics, on/off switches, lamps, motors,
etc, without hooking up the TC11? I think there is a local
mode switch and wondered what all could be tested easily
without hooking up the TC11. I will be studying the documentation
to get a better idea about things. I have a TC11 that also needs
to be cleaned up. It has a layer of dust on it and needs a couple
boards, which should be here soon.
The goal is to get it hooked up to my 11/40 eventually. I have
a number of DECtapes.
Thanks for any advice that anyone might have,
