I have a cable that goes from the Atari 14 Pin Din connector ( http://www.amabilidade2002.com/plugsjacks30.htm bottom of page) to a standard 34 Pin Disk Drive Connector.

Wiring up a cable is pretty tedious, but if someone wants to do it, it can be done.

I was thinking that it might be easier for someone who knows how to make small PC board that has this connector:

And a 34 Pin connector to accept a PC Standard Floppy cable so that someone could then attach two standard floppy drives to the ST.

I'd certainly buy a couple. I can build it up myself.

This is the pin out of the Atari Floppy connector: http://info-coach.fr/atari/hardware/interfaces.php#Floppy_Disc_Connector

One would use an existing Atari Floppy cable to go from the computer to this adapter. These Cables are sold on eBay all the time.

Anyone who can make PC Boards willing to help with this?

If you find someone, let me know. I'd be first in line to buy one or two.

Found a vendor of Atari equipment. I'm not too comfortable paying $135 per drive for floppies. If this can be made, I'd be in my glory, because I have several 720KB floppy drives laying around.

I posted this with you in mind.
