Tonight was the meeting of the Classic Computer Club here in Santa
Barbara, CA. and one of the subjects brought up was the usefulness or
uselessness of the old 5 1/5" floppy drives. Do any of you collectors
have a use for them or need them to complete a given machine? We have a
guy here in town who has been repairing these types of drives for a long
time and apparently has quite a few. I probably have between 50 and 100
of these things I "saved" from the dumpster that include the early full
height PC drives and the older 100 TPI drives used on the Vector
machines, condition unknown in most cases.
