A read/write head is mounted at one end of a barrel-like struc- ture which in turn is placed within a mount that permits a rotation and slideable movement of the barrel within the mount. Rotation of the barrel mount permits a skew adjustment to align the gaps of the magnetic head transverse to the motion of the magnetic media past the head. Sliding the barrel-like mount along its length permits a penetration adjustment of a flexible media past the magnetic heads.
