Hi zoners,


i found a working dictaphone and thought my kids would like to play with it. Unfortunately it needs a cassette.




Does any one have one in a drawer they want to get rid of?


Since it's just for the kids I'm hoping I can pay for your postage or buy you a coffee.


I'm in wellington.

Dunno if these are any good. Put perhaps better just buying something like this?

Ebay might be your best bet. It's hard finding analogue camcorder tapes in this country let alone dictaphone cassettes. How much are you prepared to pay? I might be able to help for at least $200, as I do have one lying around somewhere but would need to find it, and as they say - time is money.

Hmm, what to write...
