When I worked on this gear, we kept a magnet assy from a CDC 9762 80mb
drive under the bench in a safe place, and used it to bulk-erase any
tapes as needed. The magnets from a RA81 failed cartridge are very small
and powerful, will do nicely. I keep a few in my workshop for gen duty
screw pickup, etc.
