For watches and car engines, oil circulat- ing self-lubricating motors are more prac-
tical and for tape recorder motors as well.Two oil circulating cellulose fiber mecha- nisms are installed in this high performing
induction motor for long lasting trouble- free operation. Oil circulating speed is adjusted naturally according to motor revolutions and temperature. Thus, shaft rotation is always smooth and stable and various mechanical trouble resulting from
oil circulation suspension does not occur. Further, these unique cellulose fibers act as filters to keep the oil clean during the circulating process for epoch making en-
This model is equipped with a Tape
Selector Switch facilitating the use of
high performance wide range tape. Set- ting this switch according to the tape
