    Write enable. Index hole punches are something else entirely. I've used a conductor's ticket punch for those on 8" floppies.

    The problem is that with each sale comes the responsibility of support. I don't know--I'm kind of tired telling people that it won't run on Windows 10 with a USB floppy drive.

    I'm starting to...

    Just tried it on a couple of the files. Worked fine. Tweener was a AMD K6-2 500 with 1.44/1.2 drives. MSDOS 7.1 (Win98SE).

    Here's a sample:

    Easy, if you already have said nibbler--just insert and squeeze. I've got a couple of the things; one's modified with a special anvil to make "dragon's teeth" in sheet brass.

    I see a major application for these as supplying an external eSATA connection. I've got a couple of older PCI versions that I used for that purpose. The extra SATA and PATA ports are nice, but not...

    Run the program VIEWCONF and see what it says. (Should be part of the 22disk distro, but since I didn't make the one you're using, who knows?)

    Reminds me of the time in the 90s where someone asked me to recover data from an ADIC 32-track DC-600 sized cartridge. Iotamat, additionally, so no BOT/EOT holes. I didn't bother--the drives and...

    I don't see an enclosure in the list that fits the OP's requirement of a single half-height *' drive with no power supply. That is a "bare drive"

    From the Tandon 848 spec sheet, that's 58x217x337...

    There are ways to lower that remaining salt content (e.g. lowering the temperature)--and there's always rinsing the board with distilled water after the isopropanol has done its job.

    Yup, the carriage slides are usually delrin or nylon and slide on polished rails. Clean rails should be all that is required. Adding a traditional grease to the setup will only create a magnet...

    I wouldn't recommend distillation--isopropanol vapors are quite combustible. "Salting out" is easier and safer and actually works better at lower temperatures. You can get to about 99%...

    I see that the errors are "write" errors, not read ones.

    No, that's right--I have a can of the stuff sitting a shelt. It dissolves flux quite well.
