IBM CEs do not have cleaning tapes so they cannot help you.
As to your first question; I can only think of one of those tape devices in
the entire southeast Wisconsin area that's on a machine that's actually
still in use. There are several on machines that have been abandoned but
not yet decommissioned.

Am I just late to the party in finding out these cleaners are no longer in
production and the price has now tripled?
Can I just call IBM when it needs cleaning?
