I bought a really nice top-loading VHS player a while ago for a fiver. Played tapes fine, but the idler tire had completely disintegrated so it wouldn't fast-forward, re-wind or most importantly reel the tape back up before ejecting so a bit would be hanging out the back.
I couldn't figure out how to get the actual thing out of the VCR to measure what size idler tire I needed, so I just bought a lot of 6 different kinds and tried to get one on there. It's not a perfect fit, but I did manage it.
It now works properly.
Got a new mod? Need help with something? Post here.
