My favorite is assembled master reels with each song on a different emulsion or from a different batch!

This has been covered many times. It's a bad idea to bake Agfa tape. Richard Hess had done extensive research into tape issues.



When we had shedding problems on 468 in the 1990's we contacted Agfa and they flew a chemist over from Germany called Klaus Koppe (sp?). He recommended microwaving the tape at 10% power, then slow winding while wiping the oxide with Viledon fabric.  It worked fine but was scary. I have the notes somewhere.
