Teac Tascam capstan Motor model EM1450 second hand
This was the workhorse of the Teac and some Tascam reel to reel recorders, I have seen a later model but they seem almost the same, this came from a working unit and I have had it running a while offer a no quibble 30 day return on these as they can sometimes run for years other times a few days depending on the original usage,
I have noted (perhaps its just me being stupid) that when these things are new they draw a certain amount of current, best I have seen being 83 mA worse 200+ mA, I was thinking maybe as brushes wear down then more current is drawn but I am not a motor man, but it seems a good way to check if there is some life in the motor or at least what life will be there.
Motor only with the small pulley I can include the pcb if needed for 23.00 extra as i have a few
all motors are security marked
These motors only go in one direction and will not work (NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS) going backwards as the bushes will break, reversing motors marked CW CCW have a different bush contact, see the blog on this site
The EM1450 is a CCW motor ( counter clock wise)
