Philips EL3402
At the age of 21 I bought a Philips EL3402 open reel video recorder. Fortunately I documented a lot of my equipment back then and I am very happy today that I did. Although I don't have any units left I still have some diagrams and pictures.

After some experimenting I managed to convert my EL3402 to record and play back color video signals. I used the same components as the VCR N1500.
