The Tentelometer Tape Tension Gauges are the most
accurate, only universal method of measuring VCR hold back tape tension. You measure tape
tension out in the tape path, near the video heads, where it's important! Unlike other
back-tension measuring methods, the Tentelometer calibration can easily be checked and
verified "in the field".
The Tentel Spindle Height Gauges are reference plane
gauges that easily find problems impossible to find with any other method. They insert
into VCR's like a cassette. The instruction manual explains the elevator latch check,
spindle height, spindle wobble, Z-plane flatness, spindle end play
and tape guide post height. For machines causing tape edge damage, the TSH Gauge
series is not only the "fastest" test, but the "only" test to locate
The Tentel Dial Torque Gauge Series provide a faster,
easier method for measuring supply reel and take-up reel torque! Don't waste time removing
the sides of the transport: just place the universal adapter over the top of the
reel table. And there's no need to guess about how fast to pull the spring scale.
The Tentel motor drive turns the torque gauge smoother than is possible by hand.
The Tentel Head Protrusion / Eccentricity Gauge Series
take the guesswork out of headwear and replacement. When the heads are worn, it may not be
financially practical to fix low end VCR's; without this gauge, you'll be guessing. These
gauges help to justify service based on remaining head life. The Head Protrusion
Gauge series are a true technological breakthrough for a fast, safe, universal
gauge for measuring both video head tip protrusion and video drum eccentricity.
