    This kit, a US Recording Media exclusive for 1/4" open reel tape, is really nice since it doesn't sacrifice quality, is an outstanding value, and can be used for many years. The kit comes with one dual crosscut industrial aerospace grade polymer TME-S15N professional splicing block with a proprietary polished Surelock™ center tape groove to safely lock your tape into place for a professional splice, plus one crosscut at 45 degrees the other at 90 degrees.

    The hard polymer used to make these blocks is the same stuff used to make football helmets, aerospace, and aircraft parts. We wanted to present a block that will last for years, yet be economical. Why unnecessarily spend a lot more money on a block just because it's aluminum? It's not the material that makes the block perform, but the engineering and quality of manufacture, and most blocks we see being made out there are what we call basement grade non-anodized, unfinished, and inexcusable.

    Our proprietary Surelock™ center tape groove block is designed to lock overlapping tape into place for a perfect splice. The bottom is solid so you can easily attach the block to your deck with double sided tape (Not Included.) A TME® exclusive, the crosscut cleaning channel holes gather tape editing particles and other crud from the bottom of the blade channels, and can be easily cleaned using compressed air. Please see arrow in photo for location. For our traditionalist friends, these blocks are also available without the holes. Mention you want a block with no holes in a note to us in the order, NOT a separate message.

    The small chamfer angles on the blade cross cuts allow for easy zeroing in on the groove and are important for the life of any block. Note: The cross cut slots for cutting your media are designed for maximum .009" thickness blades. Do not use thicker blades or you can damage any block and void your warranty. ALWAYS use a sharp stainless steel media blade.

    Also included is one 82 FT roll of top selling TME® splicing tape ( the number one brand of recording accessories in the country) Lastly, you get one USA Made .009" thick stainless steel triple facet cut media edge cutting blade. Additional quantities are available from US Recording.

    WARNING: The included media blade is very sharp. DO NOT EAT. Keep away from animals and children, and any possibly unstable people.
