There is a design one kicking around on Epay somewhere that hooks up to a
parallel port (I believe) but no mechanics. Seller claims you can pull tape
through with no drop outs. Sorry cant find the link at the moment but will
have a hunt around for it.
Looks very similar to the Oliver Engineering OP-80 but the pcb's were
properly finished with green resist and silk screens, also had test tapes.
Looks like a simple design must be relatively simple to replicate.
