    They are and do take up a lot of room. Fortunately tapes are expensive, so dollar for dollar, they don't take up more space than records.

      Yeah, tape storage is an issue for I do have a lot of tapes. I keep some in my main listening room but more in my man-cave/office, which is in the finished (and of course air-conditioned) attic.

          Just a beginner in tapes... sorry if my post is stupid :
          it seems from the picture, that you ''rewind'' the pancake tape back to an aluminium spool, on the left.

          For a new blank tape, I assume it would work the same winding forward to an aluminium spool, on the right ?

            You can wind it either way. Not important. But if you wish to record onto it immediately, you start the pancake on the left (supply side) and record onto a reel on the right (take up side). Now you end up tails out as it should be.

          Thanks Jonathan.
          yes, i discovered that tape is better stored « tail out », like the wonderful reels you sent me.
