I am very confused because my Teac does not have the "twist type" spindels. They are solid and about 1/12'' long.

What type of NAB hubs do I need for this model..it seems everything talks about the type that twists.

I hope this makes sense......

It sounds like you have Pro-style spindles on your machine. Therfore Otari NAB adapters should be a good choice.

But... The A-7010 has slightly smaller diameter spindles than the Otari, so you really have to crank down on them to get them even slightly tight. I can never get the same solid feel on the Teac as they have on the Otari, they will rotate back and forth till the three splines stop them.

I just got an A-7010 to go with my MX-5050B, and need the same parts...

Right now I'm using a pair of 10.5" plastic reels with small centers, kind of a pain to wind the tape onto the reel on the Otari so I can play it on the Teac!

You need the Teac TZ-610 Adaptor

Found them at www dot product-finder dot net/ae/610-Teac-hub dot html via the google. Hope they really have them... Now to find the rubber stoppers to keep them from falling off, or do they tighten onto the spindle like the Otari bits do?

Get rid of those as soon as you can. They are more prone to wow and flutter
than the large hub types.

I was referring to the diameter that fits the spindle, i.e. 1/4" with three slots, the diameter for the tape is the same as a NAB hub...:music:

The hubs just arrived, and these are the REAL deal! Still in the original plastic bags with cellophane tape from the '70's that fell right off...

They fit the A-7010 much better than the Otari adapters. I do like the Otari design better since they stay on the spindle when you change the reel, but the TZ-610 is also a twist-tighten type, I like that!

Thanks for the tip on the model number!
