Then the Hama Tape Rewinder is certainly a cost effective solution. Although it is called a Rewinder it has a switch to enable Fast Forward of the tape. It also incorporates a 2 way auto stop sensor.
It runs on 4 AAA batteries or can be powered by a 300 - 500ma DC 6v power supply, neither were included with my purchase.
This device is generally very well made. It certainly saves time and for me ..... money.
