Magnetic recording heads

Hi all,


Can anyone tell me if you can still get R2R heads resurfaced and if so any recommended company(ies) and experience of having this done (possible costs & results vs viability of new heads($$$) ).


As an aside, if I can/do get this done, I would expect to have to re-align the heads after refitting, but would I need to adjust anything else such as bias etc (Revox machines).


I know I'm living in the wrong era, but many thanks for any info.

Yes, you can.


The company I used to use are no longer around but you'll find plenty of results with a web search. The proper keyword is 'relapping'.


It's always worth rebiasing etc when you've got a machine on the bench.
