    It's not clear to me that the bare boards were sold in advance of complete units, but it's clear that they were sold at the same time for a while. I had a friend that bought a bare board, while I...

    Tooling for injection molding is extremely expensive for small runs for an item of this size. I'm thinking that some kind plastic/resin casting technique was used, which is suitable for small...

    I'm going out on a limb and say it's a solid state 800BPI reel to reel tape emulator that would be used in place of an old fashioned 9 track reel to reel tape drive. We could probably get more...

    This only makes sense if there were a number of valuable stolen objects floating around that could be fairly easily identified by the original owners. At this point, I don't think they exist, at...

    The mechanism should operate smoothly. The old dried up grease in these drives can be difficult to remove, but take the time to get all the old stuff off. You should use a light plastic compatible...

    Unless it is completely off, radial alignment shouldn't greatly affect formatting a floppy. It should only affect drive to drive compatibility. Since it sometimes works, you might still have a...
