    Default WTB or Trade for: 5.25" / 5-1/4" Disk drive head cleaner

    I'm in need of a head cleaning diskette for 5.25" drives. Paying cash or have many possible trades.

    Thanks!

    You should have a look on eBay. There's plenty to choose from there.

    Here's a link on eBay where I bought two recently for $10 each.

    I appreciate the thoughts, but I'm perfectly capable of searching ebay. I found the prices pretty much ridiculous. That, and I have SO MUCH trading material.

    If they had any for $10 I'd likely have bought it already. But $15-25 and more is way to much.

    That auction is showing 2+ for $10.20 each with free shipping. That seems pretty reasonable...

    If you are looking for a complete unopened set I can't help. But if you just want to clean heads I can offer this: one unused sealed cleaner and one slightly used unpackaged cleaner. (plus the Verbatim cover). You will just need to sacrifice a floppy by opening up one end and removing the media. Put the cleaner disk in after wetting half of it with 90% isopropyl. If you are interested, let me know.

    Yarr, I'm getting old. Turns out I had two of the dang things, and they're even Minnesota-made 3M products.

    Sorry for the wasted space folks.
