Repair Parts & Services
Roll repair Parts: Part A, B, C and D are non-bid items: Simply add them to your order.
Part A: Document Repair Tape: This is the repair tape that you should be using to repair your rolls! The tape is very thin and has a neutral pH. In other words it is acid free, with a stable acid free adhesive, so it will not damage your roll. It should protect your music roll and should not cause any of the problems associated with other tapes. It is 1/2” wide by 600”.
The price of the roll repair tape is: S15.00 for one roll.
Two rolls for $28.00 and $14.00 per roll for additional rolls. No shipping charges, if shipped with winning bids.
If you wish to buy a roll without bidding, just send a check and include $3.00 for shipping for up to three rolls anywhere in the world. Shipping for extra rolls is fifty (0.50) cents each additional roll. Order as many rolls as you wish. FREE guide to roll repair is included also!
