Pat Shevlin reassembles an 8mm video tape cassette. Pat points out the importance of always rewinding a tape to the beginning leader. If a tape is played and re-shelved without being rewound, the exposed part of the tape (in many cases, holding important content) is more easily damaged in the event of a flood or fire.
