Thanks for the tip! Just ordered a pair. I won't describe the kludge I came up with.

This is a minor, nuts-and-bolts detail. The Nesco line of American
Harvest food dehydrators is widely used for baking
sticky-shed-syndrome tapes. One of the inconveniences of them is that
while they appear almost purpose-built for 10.5-inch reels, they do
not do well with 7-inch reels. The Convert-A-Tray accessory solves
this to a great extent, allowing the centre ring to be removed and in
essence providing a double-ring-high space for placing tapes. I have
used two pairs of these for years. I balance the other side of the
reels on stacks of NAB hubs.
I was in need of a second dehydrator to bake moldy tapes and in the
course of trying to find one locally (Home Hardware in Aurora had an
FD60 in stock) I discovered that the Convert-A-Tray was back in stock
so I ordered in another two pairs.
I thought those of you who might have missed a previous opportunity
to purchase these might be interested. Even better than that, they
appear to be at a reduced price.
I am currently running a thermal test on the new dehydrator, but the
old one kept the temperature constant within +/- 1 degree Celsius
over three hours. That was based on 3-minute samples. I'm running the
new one on 15-second samples with no thermal mass inside the unit.
