Thread: IBM 3420 tape drive and 3803 controller available

  1. #1

    Default IBM 3420 tape drive and 3803 controller available

    The seller for eBay item # 250445866736 has a complete 3420 tape drive
    and 3803 controller available. Located in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. They
    are due to be parted out if no one speaks up for them.

    I inquired about these, and the seller sent me some photos. They are
    posted on my website at http://www.harlie.org/ibm_tape .

    I do not collect IBM big iron myself, but the 3420 is iconic, and folks
    look for them from time to time.

    I have no connection with the seller.

    my thoughts, but even more so!
    At least I now know what the replacement switches I put on my Citroen Dyane came off.

    From reading the ebay listing, they are ALREADY chopping them up and selling the parts so kind of late in the game. The ebay listing is just for the front panel, nothing else as far as I could see. Well, worse than that, it is for the name plates.
