Alignment tape

Is there a good source for 1/4" quarter track alignment tapes? I know they are expensive, but does anyone have any experience with any particular supplier or source? The decks that I am interested in adjusting are all Teac, btw. Thanks for any info, opinions, or good dirty jokes.....

thanks, Des! Of course, I should have thought of them. Remember my earlier question and thoughts about using the Teac amorphous heads in a model other than the X2000? Well, I ordered one record and one play head of that type direct from Teac (yes they are available) and intend to pursue this experiment sometime over the winter.....Kansas City winters can be cold and boring, ya know....
Anyway, I will keep everyone posted as to how this goes, assuming that it does. I guess I'm thinking that these heads were primarily an answer to Akai's GX head, that is, a very long lasting head.
I would like to get my A-3300SX into shape so that heads are never again an issue with it.
