Please note, if you have purchases sensing foil from me in the past, this is a different manufacturer and the appearance is different! 


These may peel up from the backing paper!  So I highly suggest keeping them in the holder that they come in and only taking out one 30 piece strip at a time. 


Also, make sure when you are using these, you have removed any pieces of the ends of the 8 track tape that have old adhesive on them.   Then press down firmly on these once attached to the 8 track tape.  


These are New Old Stock 3M Brand. I will have more of the other type of sensing foil in the future. But for now I am offering up these high quality 3M Scotch sensing foil tabs. I have a customer who will only purchase this particular brand/type from me. He feels they are easier to work with so that getting them nice and straight where you attach them is easier than with the other style.


Be proactive and replace the sensing foil BEFORE you pop an old 8 track into the player.  7/32" in width (slightly under 1/4") , 3/4" to 13/16" length, cut at a 60 degree angle.  Comes in a protective sleeve to keep the tabs from peeling up before use. 


As always, I use REAL sensing foil.  Designed for audio applications.  Paper thin so that it will not get hung up at the capstan shaft.  A cheap and easy way to help avoid the tape getting eaten due to the old sensing foil splice breaking!!
