Re: cassette holder
Why not have an equivalent to these cassette holders made in a local
carpenter's shop. All that would be required is a block of a strong wood,
perhaps oak, and a dado blade on a radial arm saw set at an appropriate
angle. The same principle would apply to a metal (aluminum) block using a
similar approach, but with more difficulty, presumably.
