We had some old magnetic tape reels we had salvaged from a recording studio - the reels were nice and sturdy, but the magnetic tape was pretty useless to us. So, we decided to remove the tape from the reels and dispose of it.

Here is another fun geeky clock made from some recycled gadgets, the Recycled Magnetic Tape Reel Clock. This fun geeky clock is made from a 10 inch aluminum Scotch magnetic tape reel and a computer hard drive.

clock made from a recycled magnetic tape reel by pixelthis on Etsy

Here is another fun geeky clock made from some recycled gadgets, the Recycled Magnetic Tape Reel Clock. This fun geeky clock is made from a 10 inch aluminum Scotch magnetic tape reel and a computer hard drive.

This is 1/2" wide, 2400ft long, 9 track magnetic tape reel.
About 12ft of tape is unreeled to expose the BOT (Beginning Of Tape) reflective strip.
It is stuck at the front edge. A light shining at an angle is reflected to photo-electric
cell that triggured a stop to the tape movement.
(Hence the prohibition of flash photography of the drives.)
