I wonder if the header could be cut off and used for the other guy's 
thread, who has the broken leader.  That wouldn't involve the magnetic 
media being involved, and might fix his tape cartridge.  I think someone 
suggested sacrificing a cartridge, this would be better than a possibly 
good one as a source for the leader.
