Tape Reel Placement for Optimum Tape Length

      Described is a method of mounting the reels on a tape cartridge
for maximum tape length.

      By offsetting the reels on a diagonal, you can optimize the
tape length for the cartridge size.  Thereby getting the maximum tape
length in each cartridge and enhancing the overall tape capacity
