Maintenance Report

I see it again…



at first

I’m sorry

Because we can’t speak english

I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence, but I would like you to understand

Thank you

Our treasured radio cassette tape recorder!
From my grandfather to my father
Passed down from my father to myself.

By the way, it doesn’t make any sound.( lol )

I wondered when it was released, and did some research.
I don’t know at all.
My grandfather was the first to get it.
I think it was around 1980, but I was looking around for some clues.
I found numerous facial features!

I squinted and looked at it from a distance.

First, the front

If you squint and look at it from a distance
It somehow looks like a face.

Cassette tape section!
It looks like a face!
And he has a mustache!

My joy was short-lived, there was nothing else on the front…
To get back on track, let’s move on to the back side.

External speaker jack.
Looks like a robot face!

Looking at the back side of the speaker, with the head to the side…
This is good!

It’s a blowfish! ( lol )

His mouth is in a different position on the left and right!

And the side

Radio tuning dial section
It’s smiling!
Nice smile!

I was able to find the smile at the end.
I don’t care what year it was made!

It was a nice break!

This is how old radio cassette tape recorders are.
a treasure trove of fun and wonderful designs.

I wonder what face we will see next…
